The tall and talented Ha Eun-ju (22, 202cm) has been selected as a candidate for the Japanese womens national basketball team.
Major media outlets in Japan reported on March 15 that the Japan Basketball Association has named 35 players--including Ha, a Korean-born player who obtained Japanese citizenship--as candidates for the womens national team.
Ha had been expected to make the Japanese national team for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, but the decision was delayed due to various reasons, including opposition from the Korea Basketball Association.
