Hoopdarshan Episode 93: Teenage phenom Harsimran Kaur on the NCAA future and WNBA dreams

One of the brightest young stars in Indian basketball, 17-year-old Harsimran 'Hunny' Kaur, joins Episode 93 of Hoopdarshan. The teenager from Kapurthala, Punjab spoke to hosts Kaushik Lakshman and Karan Madhok about joining University of San Diego of the NCAA D1, dreams to become the first Indian in the WNBA, and how she finally defeated her father - a former national player - on the court.

Kaur, at 6-foot-3, is one of the best young players in India. Along with breakout performances at the NBA Academy India women's programmes, she has also taken part in training camps at the NBA Global Academy in Australia, the BWB Global camp in Chicago during NBA All Star, the NCAA Next Generation event, India's senior team at the South Asian Games, and the national U18 team at the FIBA 3x3 U18 Asia Cup.
