Barbara Nelson, Wingate University’s (NC) head coach, will return to lead USA Basketball’s women’s U17 team in the inaugural 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship for Women, scheduled to be held in Toulouse and Rodez, France this summer from July 16-25. Wingate coached the US U16 squad to a perfect 5-0 record and the gold medal in the FIBA Americas U16 Champion last summer.

Also returning are Wingate’s two assistant coaches from the successful U16 campaign, Mike Armstrong of Perry Meridian High School (Indiana) and Doreena Bingham of Team Alaska AAU.

This coaching team led the US past five opponents from North and South American by an average margin of 70 points per game in Mexico City to capture the 2009 FIBA Americas U16 title and cement a berth in this year’s FIBA U17 World Championship.
