The Sun Devils are being represented once again this summer in international competition play as junior forward Sophie Brunner and the United States look to claim gold at the 2015 Pan American Games when they take on Canada tonight in the championship game at 5:45 PM PT.

Brunner will become the third member of the team to earn a medal during the offseason, following senior guard Katie Hempen and junior center Quin Dornstauder who medaled with the United States and Canada, respectively, during the World University Games. Brunner has made three appearances for Team USA, showing off her rebounding prowess by snagging six offensive rebounds, which is the third-highest total on the team.

The game will be aired on ESPNU, however will be available for view without interruption on ESPN3.
