Team Alberta alum Brynn Masikewich has committed to UCLA, where she will play NCAA Division 1 women’s basketball with the Bruins beginning in the 2019-20 season.
A six-foot-three forward from Calgary, Masikewich spent four years with Alberta Basketball’s provincial teams. She was named an all-star at the 15U Canada Basketball National Championship in both 2014 and 2015, and also competed at the 2016 17U Canada Basketball National Championship and 2017 Canada Summer Games.
The Bruins, who play in the Pac-12 conference, have reached at least the Second Round of the NCAA tournament six times in the last eight years, while also winning the 2015 WNIT tournament. Last season UCLA made its first trip to the NCAA Elite Eight, following back-to-back Sweet Sixteen appearances in 2016 and 2017.
“Congratulations to Brynn for signing with one of the iconic basketball schools in Division 1,” says Paul Sir, Executive Director of Alberta Basketball.
“We are happy for her and her family that her hard work has paid off. Alberta Basketball is proud to have been one of the organizations that have supported her in her development. We wish Brynn all success as a student-athlete for the Bruins.'
Prospects Nation lists Masikewich as a four-star recruit. She is a Grade 12 student at Lincoln Prep in Hamilton, Ont., where she helped the Tigers capture Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association champions last season. Masikewich attended Grade 10 at St. Francis high school in Calgary.
A veteran of international competition, Masikewich represented her country at the 2018 FIBA U17 Women’s World Cup and was part of Team Canada’s silver-medal showing at the 2017 FIBA U16 Women’s Americas Championship.
