Rising Maryland Senior Lynetta Kizer was so enthralled with the BCs' (and Petey's) Chinese adventure earlier this year that she couldn't wait to go over and see the country for herself. But with the Terps' planned trip to the Middle Kingdom (scheduled for June) put off until next summer, the ever-resourceful Netta had to find another way to get herself there.
So she tried out for, and was just named by USA Basketball to, the 2011 USA World University Games Team that will defend the USA's gold medal later this month at the 2011 World University Games in Shenzhen, China.
This is a BIG and well-deserved honor. Congratulations, Netta . . . . bring home the Gold!!!
(P.S. Don't drink the water . . . seriously!)
