"I'm looking forward to the opportunity to work with the other coaches as well as the athletes. I really enjoy working with young people, and I view this is as a chance to give something back to the game of basketball."

The announcement from USA Basketball notes, "The all-time winningest huffman.jpgcoach in DePauw women's basketball history, Huffman takes on her selection as a USA Basketball trials court coach following a 28-4 season that saw DePauw reach the 2008 NCAA Division III Tournament quarterfinals for a third consecutive year.
