Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve has been selected by USA Basketball to be an assistant coach on the 2014 FIBA women’s world championship team, the Star Tribune reports.

Reeve will serve under Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma, who was the head coach for the 2010 FIBA World Championship team and the 2012 Olympic championship. Reeve, of course, has coached the Lynx to two WNBA championships in the in the last three years.

The Star Tribune speculates that Reeve will have some Lynx company on the team, including Maya Moore, Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen – who were all members of the USA gold medal team in 2012.

DePaul coach Doug Bruno and South Carolina coach Dawn Staley were also named assistants.

The USA National team will begin training in early September at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. The FIBA World Championships – set to take place in Istanbul, Turkey – will run from Sept. 27-Oct. 5.

The announcement about Reeve comes a day after the Lynx topped the Chicago Sky, 76-69, to win the WNBA’s first preseason tournament title at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, The Associated Press reports.
