The NBA Academy 2021’s eight-week virtual women’s program recently ended.
The program, made up of 50 young women from over 20 countries, brought out its exceptional performers yesterday (August 29 IST) with Australian Summah Hanson leaving with the camp’s MVP.
Unlike previous NBA Academy women’s camps around the world in recent years, this one has been held virtually given current travel and quarantine constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
