Carey added to Team USA roster

Sun guard Jamie Carey was added to the U.S. National team roster for its College Tour. The WNBA's leading 3-pointer shooter a year ago (.451 percent) joined the team in Waco, Texas today in time to play Baylor.

Carey replaced Loree Moore, who had to leave after a previous knee injury flared up, according to a press release. It makes Carey the only current Sun player on the Team USA roster.

"I'm pleased that Jamie will be able to join the team," said USA and Seattle Storm head coach Anne Donovan. "She will be able to help fill the void that we’ve had with the guards because of Loree Moore’s injury. Jamie is an excellent shooter as she has demonstrated with the Sun and she will give us a nice spark off the bench."

The National Team is currently 3-0 on its college tour. It's safe to say Mike Thibault had a hand in bringing Carey aboard (Thibault is an assistant on the team).
