Coach Jeff Speedy heads to Taiwan with Canada Basketball


UNB women's basketball head coach Jeff Speedy is currently in Taipei, Taiwan with the Senior B Women's National Team. 

Speedy is an assistant coach with the team which is currently competing at the 36th William Jones International Basketball Tournament.

Canada Basketball announced the roster of athletes who will compete with the team late last week.

Speedy will work with head coach Fabian McKenzie, who says the team will look to gain experience against quality opponents.

"We are looking forward to our trip to Taipei to represent Canada Basketball in the Jones Cup. Our team has put in a tremendous amount of work throughout training camp and is ready to put what they have learned into action. I have been very impressed with the performance of our group and I am excited to see them play," said McKenzie.

Canada will play five games in the tournament. A full schedule, roster and coaching staff can be found below.
