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.
