At Boom Shakalaka: The BYU Basketball Showcase, four members of the women’s basketball team will compete alongside the men in the Skills Challenge.

Representing the women will be senior guard Kim Beeston, sophomore guard Lexi Eaton, freshman guard Makenzi Morrison and junior guard Stephanie Rovetti. Eaton was BYU’s leading scorer at 15.6 points per game last season before suffering a season-ending ACL injury. She was the WCC Newcomer of the Year as a freshman in 2011-12.

Beeston has averaged 9.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists while starting every game each of the last two seasons. Rovetti saw valuable minutes at guard as a redshirt freshman in 2011-12 but sat out last season with an ACL injury. Morrison is a redshirt freshman out of Alta High School.

The pairings for the Skills Challenge are listed below. Each team will also include a fan participant. The fans will be announced on Thursday and Friday.
