Some local girls and women are on a B.C. team playing host the Japanese womenâ€™s under-18 basketball squad which is playing three games this week.
Tayla Jackson from Brookswood Secondary, along with Trinity Western University players Kayla Gordon and Chantelle Martin join top B.C. players on the B.C. Selects.
They play at the Langley Events Centre tonight (Wednesday) and Thursday evening and Friday at UBC. All games start at 7 p.m.
The public is welcome to attend and admission is by cash donation to KidSport B.C.
â€œI think this is a great opportunity for both of them to be able to play with some of the top local university athletes,â€ said TWU Spartans coach Cheryl Jean-Paul.
