Capitals guard Leilani Mitchell was also selected and one of a number of WNBA stars in the squad, along with Liz Cambage, Sami Whitcomb, Cayla George and Rebecca Allen, but they won't be able to attend the camp due to their commitments in the USA.

A final squad of 12 will be picked to contest the World Cup in Spain in September.
