SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa head women’s basketball coach Lisa Bluder will coach the U.S. team at the 2015 Pan-American Games.

Bluder has represented USA Basketball at numerous other international tournaments, including the 2001 World University Games in Beijing.

The 2015 Pan-Am Games are scheduled to take place from July 10-26 in Toronto. The 12-player roster is expected to be announced on May 17 after trials from May 14-17 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“It is an honor to be selected to coach a USA Basketball team,” Bluder said in a release. “I had such a wonderful experience as an assistant coach for the World University Games, and I am looking forward to working with our elite athletes in the Pan American Games. I don’t think there is anything more meaningful than representing your country, and to do it by virtue of coaching the game I love is remarkable.”

The Iowa head coach will have two assistants — Michelle Clark-Heard of Western Kentucky and Scott Rueck of Oregon State.
