The 2016 USA Basketball Women's U17 World Championship Team will be led by Dori Oldaker , head coach at Mt. Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania, with USA assistant coaches Dianne Lewis of Thomas Edison High School in Virginia and Samantha Quigley , who is the head mentor at the University of St. Francis (NAIA). The USA Basketball Women's Developmental National Team Committee selected the coaching staff. The trio helped the USA qualify for the 2016 FIBA U17 World Championship, which will be played June 22-July 2 in Zaragoza, Spain, by virtue of a bronze-medal finish at the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship. 'We are pleased to have Dori, Dianne and Sam back to lead the 2016 USA Women's U17 World Championship Team,' said Carol Callan, USA Basketball women's national team director and chair of the USA Basketball Women's Developmental National Team Committee. 'This group not only brings varied experience as coaches, but they also have an understanding of international basketball and of how challenging the competition at the FIBA U17 World Championship will be.' In addition to her experience as head coach of the 2015 USA Women's U16 National Team, Oldaker helped the USA to a gold medal and a 13-0 record as head coach of the 2014 U.S. Youth Olympic Games Women's 3x3 Basketball Team. She has served as a USA Basketball court coach on four different occasions, including the 2014 USA U17 World Championship Team Trials, the 2012 USA U17 and U18 National Team Trials and the 2011 USA U16 National Team Trials. 'I'm very grateful to have this opportunity to coach this USA Basketball U17 World Championship Team,' Oldaker said. 'I'm very humbled by it, and I'm excited, too, to give my best effort. 'I really felt like we worked well together as a coaching staff,' Oldaker said of Lewis and Quigley. 'We just really kind of bonded and had the same philosophy. We used a team concept as a coaching staff. It was a 'we,' not a, 'me.'' In 17 seasons (1998 to present) as a high school head coach, Oldaker owns a career record of 373-85 (through 2014-15), and she has collected four Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) 4A state championships (2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and two 3A state titles (1999, 2000). As the girls basketball coach at Mt. Lebanon for the past 13 seasons (2003-04 to present), she owns a 268-67 record through the 2014-15 season. Thus far in 2015-16, Oldaker and Mt. Lebanon are 16-9 (as of Feb. 25.). 'I am grateful for another opportunity to serve as an assistant coach with USA Basketball,' Lewis said. 'The chance to work with such amazing athletes and represent our country is one that I will always treasure. 'What an honor to work with two incredible coaches, Dori and Sam,' Lewis added. 'I respect these two women and the hard work they have put into their craft.' Lewis will serve in her third USA Basketball role after having been an assistant coach for the 2015 USA U16 National Team and a court coach at the 2014 USA Women's U17 World Championship Team Trials. In 15 seasons (2001-02 to present) as the girls basketball coach at Edison, she has compiled a 292-65 record through 2014-15. Thus far in 2015-16, she has led her team to a 22-2 mark (as of Feb. 25) and a fourth-straight 5A North Regional Championship. 'To return as a USA Basketball assistant coach means the world to me,' Quigley said. 'I was able to learn so much from the assistant coaching position last season. To be honest, we are all very hungry to pick up where we left off. I am looking forward to building on some of the successes we had last summer and pushing the players to compete every day we are together. 'I am so excited to work with Dori and Dianne again,' Quigley continued. 'They have great basketball minds, and I am constantly absorbing their thoughts and ideas about how to make us better individually and collectively. This coaching staff is special, and I cannot wait to get started again.' Quigley, who served as an assistant coach on the 2015 USA U16 National Team and as a court coach at a USA Basketball regional skills-development camp in October of 2014 in Illinois, is in her fourth year as head coach at NAIA St. Francis. So far in 2015-16, Quigley, who was named the 2015-16 CCAC Coach of the Year, has led St. Francis to a 28-4 record (as of Feb. 26), including a share of the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference South Division regular season title. Quigley played basketball at DePaul University from 2006-07 through 2010-11, including a medical hardship in 2007-08 due to a torn ACL. She helped the Blue Demons to a 92-42 record during her time, and she was named a State Farm WBCA All-America honorable mention and a Nancy Lieberman Award finalist in 2011. She tallied 1,273 points in her four seasons, and her 484 career assists ranks third on the all-time list at DePaul. Chaired in a non-voting position by Callan, the USA Basketball Women's Developmental National Team Committee also includes AAU representatives Bill Larson and Sherri Pegues, National Federation of High Schools representatives Jody Patrick and Jill Rankin Schneider and athlete representative Yolanda Griffith, a 2000 and 2004 Olympic gold medalist who has played on five USA Basketball teams.
