Brandon's Tia Coulter has earned herself a place in some elite company.

The graduating 18-year-old Crocus Plainsmen standout has been named to Team West for the upcoming 10th annual All-Canada Classic high school girls all-star game that will be played June 21 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre.

"I'm very excited about it," Coulter said. "It's the top players in Canada who get to go and play against each other and meet each other. It's a big honour. And I'm real excited to play in the Air Canada Centre. Not very many people get to say they have done that ...

"And it could also be a good opportunity to go and get noticed (by the national team program) ... but I'm not really worried about that. I just want to go and play well and have fun and enjoy it."

The event, nicknamed the Rumble in the T-Dot, has become a hugely popular showcase for Canada's finest male and female basketball players, many of whom have gone to play in the NCAA and CIS or with Canada's national program.

Coulter, a 6-foot post player, was a three-time provincial high school 4A girls all-star and was voted the top player in Manitoba in a coaches' poll. She will suit up for the University of Winnipeg Wesmen next season and has already been scrimmaging with Wesmen players in their spring league workouts.

Coulter's soon-to-be Winnipeg teammate Alex Warburton, a 6-foot-2 post from Sanford, was also named to the Classic, making them the only two players in Manitoba to get the invitation.
