June 12, 2013
SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego State star point guard Chelsea Hopkins (Las Vegas, Nev.) has been chosen to tour China with a team of USA all-stars organized and coached by Netscouts Basketball in the Four Nations Challenge, slated for June 17- 30.
Hopkins joins a squad comprised of 12 former collegiate players who will compete in a round-robin tournament against other all-star teams from China, Australia and Hungary.
A total of nine games are scheduled for three cities, with six contests to be played in Jiangxi Province (June 17-23), followed by three games in Changsu, Jiangsu Province (June 27-29). The American squad will then wrap up the tour with a pair of encounters against the Chinese U19 team in Beijing (June 29-30).
Hopkins was named the 2013 Mountain West Conference Player of the Year and received honorable mention All-America recognition after helping the Aztecs to a program-best 27-7 record and their second straight regular-season league title. Hopkins, who led the nation with four triple-doubles and finished seventh in assists during the 2012-13 campaign, also set an SDSU single-season record with 232 assists and completed her Aztec career with 442 helpers, which ranks fourth in school history.
