Maryland women’s basketball junior guard Shyanne Sellers will compete with USA Basketball in the 2023 FIBA 3x3 U21 Nations League.
The victorious team from each of the 13 qualifying events hosted worldwide this summer will be placed in the FIBA 3x3 U23 Nations League Final, set to be held in mid-September in in Mongolia. Team USA will compete in the Asia-Pacific Conference in Handan, China from June 23-29.
The half-court, three-on-three competition will be composed of six three-game tournaments in the span of a week, with four players from each team available each day. Games are played to 21 points, although if neither team reaches that threshold by the time the 10-minute game clock expires, the leading team wins.
Sellers’ Team USA teammates include five other Division I players: Mara Braun (Minnesota), Christina Dalce (Villanova), Jillian Hollingstead (Tennessee), Morgan Maly (Creighton) and Lucy Olsen (Villanova). They will train in Miami Lakes, Florida on June 17-19 before traveling to China.
In her most recent season with Maryland, Sellers was named to the All-Big Ten first team by the media and second team by the league’s coaches after averaging 13.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. She was also named to the all-conference defensive team.
