Maryland women’s basketball freshman forward Angel Reese has accepted an invitation to attend the USA Basketball U19 World Cup Team trial on May 14-16 Metro State University in Denver, per release.

Reese is one of 27 athletes who will be attending the trials and in 2018, she was a finalist for the U17 World Cup Team.

The Baltimore native played in just 15 games out of the Terps’ 29-game slate after injuring her right foot during the home opener against Towson on Dec. 3. However, expected to be out for approximately 12 weeks, Reese made a surprise return on Feb. 23 against Iowa.

Before her injury, the former five-star recruit was averaged 17 points, 8.7 boards and two blocks per game in the three games she saw on the court. Following her return, Reese incorporated herself back into the offense and became a key contributor off the bench averaging 10.0 points, six rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game on the way to helping Maryland clinch sole possession of the Big Ten regular season title along with the conference championship.

Despite missing 14 games, Reese’s freshman performance led the media to select her for the All-Big Ten Freshmen Team.

Reese joins sophomore guards Ashley Owusu and Diamond Miller in attending USA Basketball trials who qualified for the AmeriCup roster.
