Cash, U.S. to Train in Spain

The U.S. Senior Women's National Team will be heading to Salamanca and Valencia Spain to resume training for this summer's Olympics. Storm newcomer Swin Cash is one of 12 players from the WNBA who will be in Spain from March 14- 20 with the team.

The first stop for the National Team will be in Valencia, Spain from March 14-16, where they will train in preparation for a game against Ros Casares, considered one of the top EuroLeague teams. They are one of the EuroLeague's quarterfinalists and are one win away from reaching the EuroLeague Final Four. The U.S. Women will then take two more days to practice and get ready for their trip to Salamanca, Spain, where they will take on Perfumerias Avenida on March 20.

After the Spain trip, the U.S. Women will hold a training camp in Chicago from April 13-16 to further train for The Good Luck Bejing Tournament, which will also feature teams from Australia, China, Cuba, New Zealand and South Korea. The tournament will be played from April 19-26. That will keep members of the National Team out of the first week of WNBA training camps, which open April 21.
