The women’s basketball team is set for an exhibition game against Germany in London on July 23. Their roster is teeming with talent, including Kelsey Plum, Sabrina Ionescu, and Breanna Stewart. 

Plum and A’ja Wilson are among the four representatives from the Las Vegas Aces, the reigning WNBA champions.
