Incoming freshman Texas guard Destiny Littleton will represent the United States at the FIBA 3-on-3 U18 World Cup June 28-July 2 in Chengdu, China.
Littleton, along with teammates Janelle Bailey, Aquira DeCosta and Christyn Williams will comprise Team USA. The FIBA 3-on-3 U18 World Championship has been held on an annual basis since 2011, except in the years of the Summer Youth Olympic Games (2010, 2014).
Littleton was a member of the 2015 USA Basketball U16 National Team that captured the bronze medal with a 4-1 record at the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Pueblo, Mexico. In early April, Littleton was a member of the victorious Bounce Back team that won the 2017 USA Basketball 3-on-3 U18 National Tournament in Colorado Springs, Colo., earning MVP honors.
Littleton, the 2016-17 California Gatorade Player of the Year, is a 5-foot-9 guard from The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, Calif. She finished her prep career as the leading scorer in California state high school history with 4,300 points. She became the first girls player in the history of the Golden State to eclipse the 4,000-point milestone. For her career, she averaged 33.3 points per game.
