Updates on a couple of Hoos who are reppin’ the red, white and blue. First up, @UVAMensHoops alum Justin Anderson is in Chihuahua, Mexico, competing at the FIBA World Cup qualifier. Team USA fell last night against host Mexico but will have two more windows of play in qualifying action, including Puerto Rico (1-1) on Feb. 24 and Mexico on Feb. 27, 2022; and Puerto Rico on July 1 and Cuba (0-2) on July 3, 2022. The top three finishing teams from each of the four first-round groups will advance to the second round. Read the full recap here.
And from Down Under, the US Women’s National Team closes out their 2021 campaign with a 1-1 draw against Australia. Two Hoos, Emily Sonnett (pictured in above tweet on right) and Becky Sauerbrunn, played in the game.
