Indian U18 basketball team forward Srishti Suren has signed for the University of Winnipeg Wesmen for the 2019-20 season for the women's basketball roster. The 19-year-old has committed to the Wesmen having five years of eligibility. In 2018, Suren was recruited to play for NCAA Division I San Francisco but was unable to pursue a roster spot because of her national team commitments as they competed at the 2018 U18 Asian championship. The 5-foot-11 forward competed for India at the U16 Asian championship in 2015 and averaged 7.0 points and 8.2 rebounds per game, and then at the 2016 U18 championship. “We’re getting a kid who’s played FIBA international, has a lot of basketball under her belt and has travelled the world so she’s not afraid to leave to play,” said Wesmen head coach Tanya McKay in a
press release
. "She comes here with five years of eligibility, so I think the timing is great for the program." Suren is described as a strong three-point shooter who defends well with her length. "I’ve been wanting to fly high in life and I think this is one step closer to my dreams of playing in one of the top basketball leagues in the future," she said. The Winnipeg Wesmen are the athletic teams that represent the University of Winnipeg in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. As an undergraduate school, the Wesman participate in the sports of basketball, volleyball, and soccer in both the men's and women's divisions of U Sports, the university sports in Canada.
