Humboldt's Paige Crozon is continuing to impress the basketball world.
Not only did she have a stellar freshman year at the University of Utah but she has once again been called upon by the national program in Canada to try out for the junior national team.
She will leave for Toronto on March 29th. Before that her and the Utes will compete in the Women's National Invitation Tournament which is one step below the NCAA National Tournament that Crozon said they missed out on by a couple of games. They finished the season with an 18-13 record.
Despite missing out on the tournament and March Madness, Crozon says her rookie season has been great.
"So far it has been really good, we had a very successful year and a great team so I am happy with the way it's gone."
The 18 year-old former Mohawk star played in 30 games this year for the Utes starting 10 of them. She averaged four points a game. She is happy with own play going up against 22 and 23 year-old women but she also knows she wants to work on some areas.
"Yeah, it was really good, I really enjoyed it. The calibre is really high and it's a challenge for me day in and day out."
They will open the WNIT versus Long Beach State at 8 o'clock local time on Wednesday night.
That tournament, which Crozon says they "have a great chance at winning" will cap their season.
As for the national team, it wouldn't be the 6'1" gaurd's first time slipping on a Team Canada jersey. She has played on the junior team the past two summers but she knows she isn't a lock to make the squad that will compete in Lithuania in July.
"Nothing is garaunteed but I'm definitely hoping to and I will train like I am going to make it" she said of her chances.
She has also participated in the Pan-Am Games and Team Saskatchewan on numerous occasions. She says basketball has allowed her to see numerous countries, which she really tries to take in.
"It would be another cool experience, each country is a bit different and unique from every other experience so it's really cool to see."
Aside from all of her sporting accomplishments she was also Humboldt's Junior Citizen of the Year in 2011.
