Jayne sits out USA Basketball training camp

Jayne is attending the USA Basketball training camp this week, although she can't play yet.

Shawn Courchesne, The Hartford Courant, reports on Jayne at the training camp:

Last week, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma was trying to prevent Stanford's Jayne Appel from having an impact on the court in San Antonio.

Tuesday, as coach of the U.S. national team, he was wishing he could at least see her on the court at Gampel Pavilion. Read more...

In a report of the first few days of training camp from USA Basketball, Geno says of Jayne:

"We haven’t had the chance to see her on the floor with these other players. Obviously I’m anxious to see it and I know Jayne is anxious to see it. Right now all we can say is that she is part of the program. I know at some point she’s going to want to be out there and we’re going to want to evaluate her. I know that time is coming, I don’t know when." Read more...

The USA Basketball Select Team, which includes Kayla and Nneka, begins its training camp today. The two teams will participate in a Red-White exhibition scrimmage on Sunday, April 18 in Hartford, Conn. Read more...
