ODU's Buchan no longer in Great Britain's Olympic pool

It looks like Old Dominion's Mairi Buchan will not be participating in the 2012 Olympics. The Scotland-born Buchan isn't among the 20 finalists for spots on the eventual 12-member team that will represent Great Britain in London this summer. This story labels her "the most surprising omission."

"Selection to our senior squad gets more competitive year on year and this squad selection has been the toughest to date," British Basketball Performance Director Chris Spice said. "Some very good players have missed out this year and that reflects the increasing depth of women's basketball in Great Britain."

Buchan has represented Great Britain in U-20 competition the past couple of years and was on Great Britain's entry in the World University Games last summer in China. She averaged 7.0 points and 4.3 rebounds as a redshirt junior for the Lady Monarchs last season.
