Asjha Jones ● 6 - foot - 3 ● Forward

Bio:

The 10-year WNBA veteran makes her Olympic debut as the final person named to the Team USA roster this year. Jones is a two-time WNBA All-Star and is averaging more than 13 points and seven rebounds a game for the Connecticut Sun this season.

The 6'3 forward's talents are boosted by her basketball wisdom. Aside from being a UConn alum that's more than familar with Team USA coach Geno Auriemma's playing style, Jones has extensive experience playing in European leagues during the WNBA offseason, which makes her a valuable asset in analyzing the competition come Olympics time. She herself may have been surprised to make the team this year, but it shouldn't come as a surpise to any of her fans.
