    Doyle Named to U.S. Pan American Games Team

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- University of Iowa senior Kathleen Doyle has earned a spot on the 2019 U.S. Pan American Games Women’s Basketball Team roster, USA Basketball announced today.

    The 12-member team was selected by the USA Basketball Women’s Junior National Team Committee. Team members will return to Colorado Springs for training camp July 23-Aug. 5, before competing in the women’s basketball tournament at the 2019 Pan American Games from Aug. 6-10 in Lima, Peru.

    Doyle is the first Hawkeye student-athlete to make the U.S. Pan American Team since 1999 (Amy Herrig). She is the fourth Hawkeye to ever make the team (Herrig, Michelle Edwards, Cindy Haugejorde). Lisa Bluder led team USA to a silver medal as the head coach in 2015.

    A native of LaGrange Park, Illinois, Doyle was a first team All-Big Ten selection (coaches) this past season. She registered single-season career-highs in points, 3-pointers made, field goals made, and field goal percentage.

    Doyle led the Hawkeyes in assists, averaging 5.9 per game – a mark that led the Big Ten and ranked 15th nationally. She also led the team in steals (2.3 per game) and was second in scoring, averaging 12.0 points per contest.
