Bird one of 21 finalists for Team USA

Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird was one of 21 finalists to compete for Team USA in the London Olympics.

The pool of players was announced on Monday.

"Now that we're down to 21 finalists, you look around and you see a group of players that have tremendous experience," said Geno Auriemma, the head coach of Team USA and head coach at the University of Connecticut.

One of those players without as much experience is Baylor's Brittney Griner. Griner is also one of the finalists and if named to the team, she would be the first collegiate player selected to the squad since 1988.

The 21 finalists for the 2012 U.S. Olympic Women's Basketball Team include: Jayne Appel (San Antonio Silver Stars), Seimone Augustus (Minnesota Lynx), Sue Bird (Seattle Storm), Rebekkah Brunson (Minnesota Lynx), Swin Cash (Chicago Sky), Tamika Catchings (Indiana Fever), Tina Charles (Connecticut Sun), Candice Dupree (Phoenix Mercury), Sylvia Fowles (Chicago Sky), Brittney Griner (Baylor University), Lindsey Harding (Atlanta Dream), Asjha Jones (Connecticut Sun), Kara Lawson (Connecticut Sun), Angel McCoughtry (Atlanta Dream), Renee Montgomery (Connecticut Sun), Maya Moore (Minnesota Lynx), Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks), Cappie Pondexter (New York Liberty), Diana Taurasi (Phoenix Mercury), Lindsay Whalen (Minnesota Lynx) and Sophia Young (San Antonio Silver Stars).
