Baylor freshman forward Lauren Cox has been invited to try out for USA Basketball's U19 National team at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., from May 18-21.
Cox, however, declined the invitation.
The USA Basketball gold medalist and 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championship MVP will sit out to remedy tendinitis in both knees.
Cox played in every game as a freshman for the Lady Bears.
She averaged 7.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. Cox received the Big 12 Sixth Man honor and was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman team.
