Bussey Named to USA Four Nations Invitational Squad

Katie Bussey is heading back to China. Almost two months after representing the United States on an all-star squad that played in China on a 14-day tour, the former Montana State women’s basketball standout returns as a member of the USA contingent that will play in the Four Nations Invitational, June 26 – July 11, starting in Yancheng.

“I’m definitely looking forward to going to China for a second time,” Bussey said. “We’ll be playing three Olympic teams, which is going to be another amazing experience. I know what to expect this time and I’m very excited to be going back.”

Coached by Chris Denker, who orchestrated Bussey’s first trip to China, the US squad will face the national teams from China, Russia and Great Britain, as they prepare for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games. It will mark the first time a non-federation team will participate in a FIBA Olympic tune-up event.

Following its first three games, the US team will face the Chinese National B squad in a three-game series.

In her first tour of China, Bussey earned numerous all-tournament honors and poured in a tournament-best 23 points in a win over Australia.
