Rose Anderson believes she can land a place on Great Britain’s basketball team despite spending the current season in the domestic league.

The Edinburgh-born guard, who has won 29 caps, returned from America last summer to join EBL side UWIC Cardiff over an alternative offer to play in the ultra-tough Spanish League.

It means the lone Scot in the 18-strong GB squad now has to prove her worth to Australian coach Tom Maher along with a number of British-based hopefuls.

But Anderson insists she can cope with the high jump up in standard at the OIympics.

“I have worked hard all year on understanding the game better,” she said.

“I have done my homework on the game understanding why and how.

“I hope when I get to camp I can put into practice what I have been working on. I am really motivated to have the chance to compete for GB on the Olympics.”
