Three young Tasmanians remain in Australia's plans for the under-16 FIBA Asia Cup.
Launceston's Sejr Deans and Lauren Wise and Ulverstone's Zoe Crawford were among those in national teams announced following a camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra earlier this year.
The two 17-person squads will take part in a selection camp from September 4-6 after which the final teams will be determined.
Both squads have a lot of experience playing at the international level.
Riverside High student Deans and Crawford, of St Patrick's College, were among those that were part of Australia's gold medal campaigns at both the 2018 FIBA under-15 men's and women's Oceania Championships in Port Moresby, with Deans playing a pivotal role in the dramatic men's victory.
Last year, the under-16 boys team also had tremendous success at the FIBA Asia Cup. In Australia's first ever run at the tournament they took home the gold medal in a dominant display against hosts China.
Similarly, the under-16 girls team will also be coming into the Asia Cup as defending champions. In 2017, Australia narrowly defeated Japan in a thrilling final to win the gold, and like the boys in 2018, this was their first time taking part in the tournament.
