IU women’s basketball senior guard Grace Berger was named to the USA Basketball roster for the 2021 FIBA Women’s AmeriCup in Puerto Rico, the team announced Sunday. The tournament will be Berger’s first time representing the U.S. in international competition. 

Berger, a first team All-Big Ten selection in 2019-20 and 2020-21 and an USBWA All-American Honorable Mention last year, was the Hoosiers’ second leading scorer last season, helping lead the Hoosiers to their first ever Elite Eight appearance.

Berger is one of ten players from last year’s team returning to IU for the 2021-22 season.

The 2021 Women’s AmeriCup tournament will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from June 11-19, and consists of the top ten national teams from North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean. 

The tournament is held once every two year and the United States team is composed exclusively of collegiate players. The event is a qualifying tournament for the FIBA Women's World Cup and the Olympic Games.
