3. U.S. WOMEN: Ryan to look at college stars
January 2nd, 2007 5:44PM



U.S. women's national team coach Greg Ryan will bring 12 players who participated in the 2006 college season to the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., for a five-day training camp Jan. 11-15 to prepare for the team's trip to Guangzhou, China, for the 2007 Four Nations Tournament Jan. 26-30 against Germany, England and host China. All four teams will return to China in September for the Women's World Cup.

With several U.S. veterans -- including Abby Wambach and Kristine Lilly, the top two scorers in 2006 -- not participating in the January training camp or the Four Nations Tournament, Ryan give several young players a chance.

Among the 28 players Ryan called up are 2006 Soccer America Player of the Year Heather O'Reilly of champion North Carolina. Among the 11 uncapped players earning call-ups were 2006 Hermann Trophy winner Kerri Hanks of Notre Dame and 17-year-old Casey Nogueira, who came up big as a freshman for North Carolina in the Women's College Cup, scoring in both the semifinal and championship games.

    GOALKEEPER: Val Henderson (UCLA).
    DEFENDERS: Rachel Buehler (Stanford), Sheree Gray (Penn State), Stephanie Lopez (Portland), India Trotter (Florida State).
    MIDFIELDERS: Yael Averbuch (North Carolina), Brittany Bock (Notre Dame), Tobin Heath (North Carolina).
    FORWARDS: Lauren Cheney (UCLA), Kerri Hanks (Notre Dame), Casey Nogueira (North Carolina), Heather O'Reilly (North Carolina).
