Gators' Kelley does well in national hoops tryouts

Xavier sophomore-to-be Alana Kelley had quite an achievement over the weekend, reaching the final 92 spots for the 2015 USA Under 16 National Womens Basketball Team.
When the roster was trimmed to 40, the 5-foot-11 Kelley unfortunately was not on that list that eventually will be trimmed to 12, but the experience she gained undoubtedly will aid her as she continues to develop her skills for the Gators during the 2015-16 season and in future national tryouts.
Congratulations, Alana!!
The tryouts were held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
