US-based Mili Koyamainavure has been drafted into the Fiji under-19 women's basketball team for the Oceania Youth Basketball Championship in Australia.
And New Zealand-based Leba Korovou has also been included into the team.
Koyamainavure, who is on a study scholarship in the US, will be one of Fiji's key players if she joins the team in Australia.
The former Adi Cakobau School star and Korovou were part of the Fiji women's basketball team during the Pacific Games in New Caledonia last year.
Basketball Fiji and Fiji women's U19 coach Laisiasa Puamau said they would finalise the team next week.
"We are trying to negotiate if they can be part of the tournament in Australia. Mili and Leba are good players and they have experience playing with the national team," Puamau said.
"Both of them are in the squad. We will finalise the squad next week before we continue with our preparation."
Puamau said the girls were slowly improving in each training session.
"I have been training the girls for the past couple of weeks and I have seen improvements on performances.
"I am happy with the progress so far despite the fact that we still have a lot of areas to work on," he said.
Meanwhile, the men's U19 team has opted to maintain a low profile in their preparation. Team coach Saula Koroi said they would name the final team during next week's trials.
The Oceania Youth Championship will be held in November.
