BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — After leading the LSU women's basketball team to a Sweet 16 appearance, forward Theresa Plaisance and guard Danielle Ballard have been invited to participate in the 2013 USA Basketball Women's World University Games Team trials.

They are among 31 of the nation's top players invited Wednesday to convene at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 16-19, where a 12-member squad will be chosen to represent the USA at the World University Games, July 8-15 in Kazan, Russia.

Plaisance, of New Orleans, led the Southeastern Conference in scoring in her first year as a starter, averaging 17 points per game. Ballard, of Memphis, Tenn., shattered LSU's single-season record for steals with 100 in her first year and put up 12.1 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
