Karlie's plans for next season

Karlie Samuelson ('17) is currently at WNBA training camp, competing for a spot on the LA Sparks roster. She won't know whether she makes the cut for a couple of weeks, but a reliable source reports that she would have made it last summer, had she not re-injured the ankle that she had sprained in the Final Four a couple of months earlier.

Regardless of the WNBA outcome, Karlie will play professional basketball in Belgium (the first Cardinal alumnae to play in that country) in the 2018-19 season. She has signed a contract with Mithras Royal Castors Braine , which is located in Braine l'Alleud, Belgium (see map), and is expected to arrive there at the end of September or in early October.

Castors Braine is an excellent team. It had a perfect 2017-18 season (22-0) and won the Belgian Top Division championship for the fifth consecutive season.
