After playing for the U17 team last summer, incoming UB Women’s Hoops freshman Hanna Hall was selected today to play for the U19 Canada Women’s National Team. The Hamilton, Ontario native committed to the Bulls back in September.
Hall played nine games with the CWNT last year with six of them coming at the FIBA U17 World Championships. She averaged 2.7 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game as the backup point guard for the team.
The soon-to-be Bulls point guard will make her way to the factory town of Voiron, France for an exhibition tourney on July 15-17 before partaking in the 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup on July 22-30 at Udine and Cividale del Friuli, Italy.
Three games are slated already for CWNT in the World Cup: An 8AM matchup with Korea on the 22nd, A 9:45AM matchup with France, and a 10:15AM game with Latvia. FIBA is pretty good with streaming their competitions so we’ll pass a link off to you when we know about it to check it out.
Despite being on the smaller end of the height spectrum, Hall possesses the qualities you want from a point guard in Coach Jack’s system. She’s very aggressive on defense and she’s an efficient passer. The 5-3 guard also has a strong ability to slip past defenders in the post, akin to Stephanie Reid. Chances are we’ll see her play a decent amount of minutes as our backup point guard in the coming season.
