Louisville native to play in JR NBA World Championships

Rising Central High freshman Amaya Asher is getting a big basketball oppurtunity next weekend in Orlando, Fla.

Asher plays on an AAU team out of South Bend, Indiana that is run by WNBA and former Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins.

Her team has made it to the Junior NBA World Championships and will have a chance to play against the best of the best.

The teams in the tournament come from all over the world and many different continents giving Asher a unique oppurtunity to interact with those who aren’t from the US.

Pool play starts Aug. 7th and continues until the 8th. On the 9th the teams will go out and serve the community. Bracket play is on the 10th, the U.S. and International semifinals are on the 11th and the championship will be the 12th.

LWSN wishes Amaya and her teammates the best of luck.
