Georgian teenage basketball player Ekaterine Tsivtsivadze will be among young athletes representing the Europe and Middle East team at the second Jr. NBA Global Championship in Florida, the United States later this summer after she was selected for the honour.


Tsivtsivadze, born in 2004, was picked for the team after attending a selection camp in Bologna, Italy that ran between April 30-May 3.


Involving 60 players from 24 countries, the camp’s organisers eventually narrowed down the selection for the continental team to 10 boys and 10 girls that will travel to the US in August.
