With the college basketball season fast approaching, we figured it was time to put together a definitive list of every female British basketball player in the US College system.
As with the men, the US is an extremely popular option for our most talented with many making the jump as soon as they finish college in the UK.
There are 21 players hooping in NCAA Division 1 this season by our count, after a number of players graduated at the end of last season.
This is by no means a completed list – if you know of any we are missing, please let us know in the comments so we can add them in!
