Serah Williams is, somewhat, quietly putting together one of the finest Wisconsin Badgers women’s basketball careers we’ve ever seen. As a freshman in 2023 she was named to the Big Ten’s All-Freshman Team and was named B1G Freshman of the Week four times and after her sophomore season she was First Team All-Big Ten, All-B1G Defensive Team, and the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Keep in mind she still has two more years to go.

Well, on Friday morning yet another feather was placed in her cap when it was announced that she will be on the 2024 USA 3×3 Women’s Nations League Team.

The team will be competing in the Americas Conference (July 22-28 in Mexico City) which will feature six three-game tournaments over the week. The winners will qualify for the FIBA 3×3 U23 World Cup 2024 (Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia) which takes place in September. Per the USA Basketball website:

“Different than five-on-five, 3×3 is played on a half-court with a 10-minute game clock and 12-second shot clock. Play is continuous, as teams “clear” the ball behind the 2-point line following a made basketball, defensive rebound or steal. The first team to score 21 points via 1-pointer field goals or 2-pointers behind the arc is victorious; or if time expires then the team leading wins.”

The other members of the women’s team include:

  • Christina Dalce, Maryland Terrapins
  • Morgan Maly, Creighton Bluejays
  • Cotie McMahon, Ohio State Buckeyes
  • Lucy Olsen, Iowa Hawkeyes
  • Mikaylah Williams, LSU Tigers

Serah Williams is the only player on the roster that hasn’t played for USA Basketball yet with Dalce, Maly, and Olsen winning the 2023 FIBA 3×3 Nations League Final last year. The head coach will be Christina Batastini for the second straight year. The men’s team contains a couple of players that fans of recruiting might remember in Finley Bizjack and Boden Kapke (both of Butler University) and will be looking to defend USA’s title in Mongolia.

The team will begin training camp in Phoenix, Arizona, during the WNBA All-Star Weekend, playing an exhibition against Team WNBA on July 19. The games will be streamed on YouTube during the tournament.
