USA Basketball appears to be staying consistent on the plans for 3x3 and 5x5. That said, 3x3 has not been an easy ride for the U.S., and gold is far from assured.

At some point, we may see 3x3 specialists, but I don't think Ionescu, to name just one, will stay 3x3 for her whole international career.

Additional Team USA Pool Members Not At Camp
Elizabeth Williams (Atlanta Dream)


It appears Elizabeth Williams could be competing for the Nigerian women's basketball national team at the Olympics.

D’Tigress on Sunday concluded the first phase of their 2020 Olympics camping in Atlanta which lasted for 10 days with 15 players in attendance.
The training camp which is one of the numerous being put in place by the Nigerian Basketball Federation has been described as a great concept that allowed the current players in the team to bond well with the new faces invited by Coach Otis Hughley.
After spending about 10 days together, she believes the latest addition of Nicole Enabosi, Erica Ogwumike, Oderah Chidom, Amy Okonkwo and Elizabeth Williams will only strengthen the team and make it easier to compete and fight as a stronger unit.

I am surprised, as Williams played for USA Basketball on the U16, U17, and U19 teams (and was the FIBA Americas U16 Championship MVP).

That being said, Williams is a British-born Nigerian-American. If she is unlikely to make Team USA, this would be an opportunity to still play in the Olympics.

From what I noticed on Colliers experence on the 3x3 team, she is certainly beter suited to play 5x5. It requires a different skill set to excell in 3x3 and she did not appear to have it. Wasn't quick enough laterally.
