——————————————————–

Washington PG Kelsey Plum, an in-coming freshman, will be part of the USA U19 World Championship Team that plays China (1-0) at 10:15 am PT on Friday.  FIBA will provide live stats of its U19 World Championship tournament.

The Americans (1-0), who have Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves as an assistant, defeated Lithuania 113-47  in the FIBA U19 World Championship opener on Thursday in Panevezys, Lithuania. Plum played 16 minutes against Lithuania (0-1), finishing with seven points, six rebounds, four steals and three assists in the game. Connecticut star Breanna Stewart led the USA with 26 points on 8-for-11 shooting in 20 minutes.

Plum is part of UW’s best in-coming class in program history. The group is led by C Katie Collier, who missed the 2012-13 season due to a knee injury. She’s rehabilitated and cleared to play. F Chantel Osahor and G Brianna Ruiz round out the freshmen class. First-year coach Mike Neighbors also signed former Miami C Macy Keen this offseason but she’s ineligible to play until 2014-15 due to NCAA transfer rules.
