Memphis Lady Tiger Ramses Lonlack joins Cameroon in bid to make Olympics

Ramses Lonlack has spent the last three years helping build the University of Memphis women's basketball team into a contender in Conference USA.

Now she's on the verge of doing the same for her native Cameroon's national team. The Tigers senior leaves today to rejoin the Cameroon national team as it participates in the Afrobasket Tournament, Sept. 23-Oct. 2 in Mali, where it hopes to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

"I'm really excited about this," Lonlack said. "It's been three years that Samuel Nduku, the president of the Federation (of Cameroon basketball) has been trying to build Cameroon basketball. This is a great opportunity for us to go and represent our country and to qualify for the Olympics."
