USA Basketball announced its roster for the inaugural 2021 3×3 Women’s AmeriCup, set to be played Nov. 12-14 in Miami.

Cierra Burdick, Brionna Jones, Kelsey Mitchell and Alexis Peterson will represent Team USA, and Joe Lewandowski will serve as their coach.

Burdick and Peterson were both members of the Force 10 3×3 team that won the 2021 Red Bull USA Basketball Nationals in June, with Burdick being named tournament MVP. They also played together at the 2021 FIBA 3×3 Women’s Series Klaipeida Stop in Lithuania in July, when the U.S. went 5-0 to win the tournament.

Jones, a WNBA All-Star and the league’s Most Improved Player in 2021, currently plays for the Connecticut Sun. Mitchell, a guard with the Indiana Fever, was a finalist for the 2018 USA World Cup Team.

Team USA, playing in Group B, opens against Venezuela on Nov. 13 at 1:50 p.m. ET. Next, they play Argentina at 5:40 p.m. ET on the same day.

The top two teams from each of the four preliminary round groups will advance to the medal round on Nov. 14.
