Bird, Taurasi headline US women's hoops national team pool

NEW YORK (AP) Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi headline the 29 players chosen for the U.S. women's basketball team pool.

Bird and Taurasi have each won four Olympic gold medals and helped the U.S. to the past two world championships.

Eleven members of the 2016 Olympic team that won a sixth consecutive gold medal for the Americans are in the pool that was announced Thursday. The only player missing from that team is Tamika Catchings, who retired after the 2016 WNBA season.
