Piper Doo (5’8”, PG, Southwest Academy, 2019), Sarah Te-Biasu (5’4”, PG, Lucien Page, 2022) and Keishana Washington (5’7”, PG, Durham Elite, 2018) have each been selected to represent Canada at the Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Camp taking place in Los Angeles, CA from February 16-18, 2018.
The two Ontarians (Doo from London, ON and Washington from Pickering, ON) and one Quebecer (Te-Biasu from Montreal, ON), will join boys and girls from 35 other countries for on and off-court activities ranging from skill development and 5-on-5 games to life skills seminars.
The NBA/WNBA and FIBA have teamed up for this event, whose focus is to help build the game worldwide, which has been positioned as one of the NBA All-Star Weekend events taking place the same weekend. The various BWB camp events will be taking place at the Los Angeles Lakers’ Training Facility.
Among the many dignitaries that will be on hand, helping out in the various facets of the camp, the high school aged players will have the chance to work with current NBA players including 5-time All-Star, Al Horford (Boston Celtics; Dominican Republic) and 2018 NBA All-Star Goran Dragic (Miami Heat; Slovenia), along with Domantas Sabonis (Indiana Pacers; Lithuania), Timofey Mozgov (Brooklyn Nets; Russia) and Sam Dekker (LA Clippers; U.S.).
To complete the once in a lifetime experience, Camp attendees have been invited to attend each of the marquee All-Star Weekend Events including the Rising Stars game, the NBA Skills Challenge and the All-Star Game at the Staples Centre.
