AMES (KWWL) -

Iowa State women's basketball head coach Bill Fennelly has been named head coach of the 2011 USA Basketball Women's World University Games Team.

Fennelly, a three-time gold medal winner as a USA assistant coach, will be assisted by Suzie McConnell-Serio of Duquesne University and Terri Williams-Flournoy of Georgetown University at the competition, which is held Aug. 14-21 in Shenzhen, China.  

"Being named a head coach by USA Basketball is one of the greatest honors of my professional life," Fennelly said. "I am humbled and thankful that USA Basketball has given me this opportunity. 

Fennelly previously helped the USA to a gold medal and an 8-1 record at the 2009 FIBA U19 World Championships in Thailand, a gold medal and a 5-0 record in the 2008 FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Argentina and a gold medal and 3-1 record with the South Team in the 1994 U.S. Olympic Festival.

Fennelly and the staff will hold trials to select the official, 12-member USA Basketball Women's World University Games Team May 22-25 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. Following the selection of the team and/or finalists on May 25, the athletes and coaches will return home. Training will resume at the U.S. Olympic Training Center July 31-Aug. 8, prior to the team's departure for Shenzhen, China and the 2011 World University Games.
