Taurasi ready for final go-round with USA Basketball

NEW YORK (AP) Diana Taurasi wants to make the most of her final go-round with USA Basketball.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist is back for one more run at a world championship and potentially the 2020 Tokyo Olympics if she can stay healthy.

"It's made me more driven than ever to be healthy for it. I want to end it the right way," Taurasi said in a phone interview Saturday. "It's something that I take very seriously. I want to be at the highest level to play for our country."
