Oregon State women's basketball juniors Ruth Hamblin and Jamie Weisner were invited to attend the Canadian Senior Women's National Team tryout Wednesday. Hamblin and Weisner are among 21 invited athletes for the four-day tryout, which begins June 9.

Weisner played for Canada at the U19 World Championship for Women last year in Lithuania, averaging 17 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

Hamblin, meanwhile, was promoted to the Canadian Senior Women's National Team in the summer of 2013, competing in exhibitions in Europe and China.

Hamblin set the Pac-12 single-season record for blocks this past year with 141, and Weisner was an All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention.

The team will be selected before the team's training camp from June 16-25 in preparation for the World Championships starting June 26.
