Day-Wilson Shines Bright On World Stage



Shayeann Day-Wilson averaged 18.1 points per game throughout the 2021 U19 Women’s Basketball World Cup that took place in Debrecen, Hungary.

As the main catalyst to the fortunes for Team Canada, the PG from Toronto, ON logged a minimum of 35 minutes per game and was every bit a standout that has come to be expected from her style of play.

Key performances early in the event including 29 points in Canada’s event opener against Japan and 31 point in game 2 against the Czech Republic, set the tone that she will be putting the team on her back and pressing for great things.

Day-Wilson was also a key contributor in other areas of the stats sheet as well. She added an overall average in the event of 5.7 assists (9 against Mali and 8 against France), 5.9 rebounds (11 against Russia and 6 each against the Czech Republic and Australia) as we as 1.9 steals (4 each against the Czech Republic and France).

The recent Duke commit who will begin her Freshman year next month, finished the event second overall in scoring and second in assists among all players in the 16 team World Cup championship.
