16-year-old was one of 64 prospects from more than 30 countries that participated in BWB Global as a part of NBA All-Star 2020.
Harsimran Kaur was invited to participate in a multi-week training camp from Feb 17 to March 3 at The NBA Global Academy at Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence in Canberra, Australia.
This is her second stint at the NBA Global Academy after attending a camp from 7 to 24 November 2019, which made her the first prospect from the NBA Academies Women’s Program and the first female prospect from outside of Australia to attend The NBA Global Academy.
The 16-year-old travelled to Canberra from Chicago after attending the sixth annual Basketball without Borders (BWB) Global Camp, which was held at Quest Multisport as part of the NBA All-Star 2020.
She was one of 64 prospects from more than 30 countries that participated in BWB Global as a part of NBA All-Star 2020.
“I am thrilled to go back to the NBA Global Academy in what will be yet another opportunity for me to sharpen my skills further. My first camp in November 2019 gave me a lot of insight on various aspects of my game and how I can improve. I expect this camp to help me find a clear pathway to make it to professional ranks,” said Harsimran Kaur.
Harsimran was named MVP at the third NBA Academies Women’s Program camp held in Mumbai from 2 to 5 October. The youth player from Punjab has represented India at multiple events, including the 3×3 Asian Championships held in Jakarta in August 2019.
She was also one of four Indian girls invited to the first Next-Generation program at the NCAA Women’s Final Four in Tampa this past April, competing against top USA Basketball Women’s Junior National Team members.
This was followed by her participation in Basketball without Borders Asia in Tokyo the same summer. The NBA Global Academy serves as the NBA’s hub for top prospects from outside the U.S. During her time in Canberra.
Harsimran is participating in practices, three-on-three scrimmages and weight training sessions alongside top Australian prospects and under the guidance of coaches from the NBA Academy and Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence.
