“It is an honor to be selected to coach a USA Basketball team,” Bluder said in a release. “I had such a wonderful experience as an assistant coach for the World University Games, and I am looking forward to working with our elite athletes in the Pan American Games. I don’t think there is anything more meaningful than representing your country, and to do it by virtue of coaching the game I love is remarkable.”

The Iowa head coach will have two assistants — Michelle Clark-Heard and Scott Rueck. Clark-Heard coaches at Tennessee-Chattanooga and Rueck at Oregon State.
