Abbey Wehrung has become Ballarat's latest Australian senior elite basketball representative.
Wehrung made her debut for the Australian Opals in the opening round of the FIBA Women's Asia Cup in Jordan.
She was one of two late call-ups into the final squad after initially being named as a reserve.
Wehrung had 13 minutes on court as Australia came behind in the third quarter to defeat Chinese Taipei 76-65 in the first of three group phase games.
She was one of 12 players used by Australia.
The 25-year-old had one defensive rebound, but was astray in two shots at the hoop, including one from the three-point range.
The Opals round out their preliminary fixtures against the Philippines and China on Wednesday.
China defeated Philippines 143-52 in the other half of the group.
Wehrung, who is from Korweinguboora, joins Australian Basketball Hall of Fame members Robyn Maher (nee Gull) and Allison Tranquilli (nee Cook) has players to have developed their game through a Ballarat pathway and gone on to play for the Opals.
Maher is a three-time Olympian with a bronze medal from Atlanta in 1996, while Tranquilli is a two-time Olympian, having secured a bronze medal at Atlanta and sliver at Athens in 2004.
Finding herself in Opals line-up also puts Wehrung into the mix to earn selection for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
Wehrung plays with Adelaide Lightning in the WNBL and Bendigo Spirit in the NBL1 competition.
