    USA Basketball announced today a list of 35 invitees to the trials, that will be attended by over 100 applicants as well.
    The invitees list is led by 2019-class Samantha Brunelle, member of the 2016 U17 WC team and Aaliyah Boston, who was among the 18 finalists last year.
    Just few names are known, among them is Francesca Belibi who became famous as the first girl in Colorado dunking in a game.
