(AP) – Dawn Staley is going to be busy next week.

The South Carolina coach will be pulling double duty leading the fourth-ranked Gamecocks and running a USA Basketball training camp at the school from Feb. 4-7.

Staleyโ€™s college team will be at Auburn on the first night of the camp, so U.S. assistant coaches Cheryl Reeve and Dan Hughes will be in charge.

Assistant Jen Rizzotti wonโ€™t attend because she is busy coaching her George Washington team.

Four-time Olympians Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi wonโ€™t be at the camp, but veteran medalists Sylvia Fowles, Breanna Stewart and Brittney Griner will be among the 19 players in attendance.
