NDSU is taking its women's basketball program overseas. Four members of the team have been selected for the USA Athletes International Team next summer.

Abby Plucker, Janae Burich, Katie Birkel and Danielle Degagne will play 5 games in 5 different countries, which includes stops in London and Paris. They say this will be a great chance to improve their games.

Janae Burich – NDSU Junior Center: “Coach Dehoff called me the day this opportunity showed up I think it’ll be great for you to do it, we're fundraising for it, when am I going to get this chance again.”

Abby Plucker – NDSU Senior Forward: “It takes nominations from the coaches, we just got some good nominations, coach working hard for us, 10 player roster, we have almost half of it, hopefully we have some good continuity for it.”

The trip begins May 27th next summer.
