Lasic Set To ‘Come After’ Ivy League For ‘22



Helena Lasic of Brampton, ON has committed to attend the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school located in Philadelphia, PA.

Lasic, who former played with both the Brampton Warrior and Team Ontario, has gone the American prep route for the past couple of years, ultimately landing at New Hope Academy in Maryland.

Lasic is a lengthy presence in the paint on both ends of the floor. She has a game with her back to the basket, including a pretty good ability to leverage ball fakes lean on counters, should her original move be met with resistance. On defence she has some shot blocking ability, but more frequently demonstrates good lateral mobility to stay close enough to opponents in order to alter their shot trajectory and thereby decreasing their shooting odds.

Lasic last played her AAU summer ball with the DMV Lady Tigers, also based out of the Maryland area.
