Notre Dame senior All-America guard Kayla McBride and former Irish All-America guard Skylar Diggins are among 33 players who have accepted invitations to participate in the USA Basketball Women's National Team mini-camp Oct. 4-6 at Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas.

The camp is being used to identify players for the USA National Team pool, from which the 2014 USA World Championship Team will be chosen.

McBride, who is one of seven collegians on the 33-player camp roster, and Diggins will be the first Notre Dame players to compete with the USA Basketball Women's National Team since 2004, when Ruth Riley helped the Americans to a gold medal at the Athens Olympics.
