Basketball: Weigl (and others!) wrangle national team tryout

Canada Basketball's invite list for the women's team tryout camp this week includes some homegrown talent:
  • Laval point guard Chanelle St-Amour and post Marie-Michelle Genois;
  • UBC post Leanne Evans;
  • Simon Fraser post Laurelle Weigl; former Clan guard Teresa Gabriele is also back, as you would take for granted;
  • Former Winnipeg star Uzo Asagwara, who averaged 28 points during her final CIS season in '06-07;
Also of note is that Gonzaga forward Janelle Bekkering (sister of Henry and Ross of Calgary Dinos fame) was also invited, along with Ottawa native Kadie Riverin, who ran the point at Rice University in Houston from 2004-08 and spent last season playing in Switzerland.

Canada is gearing up for the FIBA Americas qualifier, where it needs a top-three finish to qualify for the worlds in September 2010.

Please speak up if there are any alumnae on the tryout whom I missed.
