LSU star Angel Reese headlines the roster for USA Basketball’s 2023 AmeriCup team, revealed Thursday.

Joining Reese are South Carolina’s Raven Johnson, UCLA’s Lauren Betts and Tennessee’s Rickea Jackson, among others. Eight players made the initial roster announced in May, and Texas A&M’s Janiah Barker, Oregon’s Chance Gray, Columbia’s Abbey Hsu and UNC’s Deja Kelly — were added to the roster after being invited to training camp.

Of the 12 players on the roster, five of them — Barker, Betts, Jackson, UCLA’s Charisma Osborne and Wake Forest’s Jewel Spear — have a combined seven gold medals as members of USA Basketball teams.

Reese, though, will be competing internationally for the first time. The 2023 NCAA champion faced a long road to USA Basketball. While she had been a finalist for a variety of youth teams, she hadn’t made the cut until this time around.


The tournament will run from July 1-9 in León, Mexico. Held every two years, the AmeriCup features teams from 10 different countries in North America, South America and the Caribbean. The United States has won the title four times, including at the last two tournaments in 2019 and 2021.

Team USA will compete in Group A against Argentina, Brazil, Cuba and Venezuela. Group play starts on July 1.

Janiah Barker, the No. 3 basketball prospect according to ESPN HoopGurlz, has switched her commitment from the University of Georgia to Texas A&M.

The decision comes after Joni Taylor, who had led Georgia since 2015, took the head coaching job at Texas A&M. Sydney Bowles and Tineya Hylton also have followed Taylor from Georgia.

Baker announced the decision Wednesday night on Made for the W.

“I was committed to the University of Georgia. Was super excited for that journey but the path changed and coaches changed, a lot of things changed,” she said. “But I feel as if everything is happening for a reason and I’m truly excited for this new chapter in my life.”

A McDonald’s All-American, Barker averaged 15.2 points and 9.3 rebounds in 21 games as a senior. She is set to become Texas A&M’s highest-ranked signee, ahead of Chennedy Carter, who was ranked sixth in the Class of 2017. Carter now plays for the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks.
