The American-born point guard is set to become the first naturalised player in the history of the Belarus national team. Her adopted nation has been desperately searching for a playmaker for some years after Natallia Marchanka and Volha Padabed decided to call it a day. So the Federation bosses have decided to compensate for the lack of elite level game-conductors in the short-term by acquiring one from overseas. Harding became the chosen one not only because of her outstanding skills, but also for her familiarity with the European style of play. She spent four seasons sharing her talents with team-mates of the highest quality in Russia and Turkey. It's worth mentioning that she has also had several call-ups to the US national team, but couldn't quite squeeze onto the roster. She is deemed to be a premier defensive player and her level of professionalism and basketball abilities should make her a welcome addition to the roster.
