Southmoore: Sidney Cook a finalist for USA U18 team...
By Robert Przybylo
Southmoore’s Sidney Cook has been named as one of the 16 finalists for the 2010 USA women’s U18 national basketball team, it was announced Friday.
The 12-player roster will be released Monday, and the team will compete in the FIBA Americas U18 Championship from June 23-27 at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
As a sophomore, Cook averaged 13 points and seven rebounds per game.
Cook was also in Colorado Springs as one of the 36 players trying out for the US U17 World Championship team.
Cook has been in Colorado Springs all week as the girls went through three days of practices and trials to dwindle the 27-player roster to 16.
“It was a unique situation, having the U17s and U18s going on at the same time, but I thought being able to inter-mingle the groups helped us get a clear-cut idea of who was ready,” USA U18 and University of Hartford head coach Jen Rizzotti said in a press release.
