    Default Strib: MN OGs 3 on 3 Olympic Hopefuls

    http://www.startribune.com/local-3-o...ics/555182612/

    Jenna Smith, Ashley Ellis-Milan, Breanna Salley and Kiara Buford:
    Bloomington native Jenna Smith and the rest of the MN OGs grew up playing basketball together, competing with and against each other since high school. Even when it was time for college, all four members landed in the Big Ten as student-athletes.

    So when the four heard about the Red Bull 3-on-3 basketball tournament happening in Blaine last Saturday, forming a squad full of Division I talent felt natural, even a decade after college.

    After winning the bracket, they're now one step closer to representing the United States at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — though there's still a long way to go.

    ...

    Smith, an Illinois alumnus, still plays professionally overseas — for nearly a decade now. Salley and Ashley Ellis-Milan work for the Timberwolves and Lynx, both in leadership roles of the basketball academy. Salley, Ellis-Milan and Kiara Buford all played at Minnesota for at least one year. All four were raised in the Twin Cities area.

    "The Big Ten, we grew up on it," Smith said. "It was just an honor to be in the Big Ten — that's what we're bred on in Minnesota."
    After winning the bracket, they're now one step closer to representing the United States at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — though there's still a long way to go.
