“Being chosen to go to compete in the ISF 5×5 in Croatia is such a good opportunity,” commented Senior Forward and Elon commit Anna Popovic. “To compete in international basketball and see how other nations play and the level of other academies alike ourselves is always great! My last experience at an ISF tournament was amazing, so really looking forward to going and competing once again!
