โ€œThis is something as an athlete and now a coach you dream of your entire career,โ€ said Wright in a statement.ย  โ€œIโ€™m excited to go and learn from some of the best athletes and coaches in the world and represent my country at the highest level.โ€

Wright was a court coach for the Women’s National Team in the 2024 FIBA Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Antwerp, where they scored a 3-0 record in last February’s tournament.
