The Lancer women’s basketball team will have a chance to play in front of an international audience in February, when it takes part in the festivities surrounding the National Basketball Association’s all-star game.
In what head coach Chantal Vallée called “the experience of a lifetime,” the squad will meet the Queen’s Gaels for a game February 13 at Toronto’s Enercare Centre.
“I want to thank the OUA for organizing such an event and Queen’s for agreeing to this opportunity,” she said. “It will be the experience of a lifetime for each of our programs to be part of an NBA All-Star Weekend and we will all cherish these memories for our lifetime.”
