Del Rosario Selected to Participate in USA Basketball Women’s U19 National Team Trials

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – LSU’s Aalyah Del Rosario has been selected to participate in the 2023 Women’s U19 National Team trials from May 12-15 at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

She is among 24 athletes competing for 12 spots on the roster to compete in the 2023 FIBA U19 Women’s World Cup that is scheduled for July 15-23 in Madrid.

Del Rosario is part of LSU’s No. 1 rated recruiting class and will play for the defending national champions next season. Her along with Mikaylah Williams, Angelica Velez and Janae Kent make up LSU’s top incoming class.

Del Rosario is a five-star prospect who is the top true big in the country with a powerful inside game who can utilize the face up game. She sees the floor well and can play outside the key too. She is also a physical defensive presence who hits the boards hard. Del Rosario took home the Gold Medal from the FIBA U18 World Cup in Argentina over the Summer.

Del Rosario played with Velez at The Webb School in Tennessee where the two won back-to-back state championship to close their high school careers.
