Former Elizabeth Seton two-time All-Met guard Tyaunna Marshall, a junior at Georgia Tech, is one of 31 players invited to the USA Basketball Women’s World University Games team trials, the organization announced Wednesday.
The invitation is the latest in a series of honors for Marshall, who this past season was named an honorable mention Women’s Basketball Coaches Association All-American, an Associated Press honorable mention all-America and also chosen to the all-ACC first team and all-ACC defensive team.
Marshall averaged 18.1 points (second in the ACC), 8.4 rebounds (seventh), 2.8 assists and 2.6 steals (third). She was the only ACC player to be ranked in the top 10 in all three categories. She also scored a league-high 37 points in a game this season, a comeback win over Miami, and is now eighth on Georgia Tech’s all-time scoring list at 1,520 career points.
The World University Games trials are May 16-19 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. All the invitees are current college players with remaining eligibility. Of the 31 players, 10 have won gold medals with USA Basketball in international competition.
The 5-foot-9 Marshall is not among those 10, although she did try out for the U-19 national team two years ago. The 12 players chosen in Colorado Springs will compete in the World University Games from July 8-15 in Kazan, Russia.
American University Coach Matt Corkery will serve as a court coach during the trials.
