Freshman Texas women’s basketball player Sedona Prince and the United States U18 Team open play at the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship on Wednesday in Mexico City.
Preliminary-round action at the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship begins on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. when the United States takes on Argentina.
The 2018 USA U18 Women’s National Team will be defending eight consecutive FIBA Americas U18 titles, a tournament in which the U.S. women have lost just twice [1992 and 1996], both times to Brazil and both loses resulted in a silver medal. Brazil did not qualify for the 2018 edition, but the USA will play Argentina, Chile and Puerto Rico in the preliminary round.
Prince, a graduate of Liberty Hill High School, is a member of the 12-person USA U18 Team roster. She and the United States defeated Canada, 72-42, in a scrimmage on Monday.
