Canadian Julie Seabrook Signs One-Year Contract in Switzerland

TORONTO – August 2, 2012 – Slan Sports Management is pleased to announce the signing of Julie Seabrook to a one-year contract with Pallacanestro Bellinzona of Switzerland’s LNA league.

Seabrook, a 6’3’’ power forward, played the last four seasons at the University of Colorado.  Between 2010 and 2012, she was the only Buffalo’s player to start 69 games in a row.

In her senior year, Seabrook averaged 7.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.  She shot 47.4 percent from the field in Pac-12 conference games, which ranked her seventh in the conference.  Seabrook also took home the Ceal Barry Colorado Pride Award in each of her last two seasons.  The award is given to the player who shows pride in the program through leadership on the court, campus and community,  as well as a steadfast work ethic on the court and in the classroom.

Seabrook, originally from North Vancouver, British Columbia, graduated from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Hamilton, Ontario in 2008, where she played for Canada Basketball’s National Elite Development Academy (NEDA).  Prior to her senior season, she played for Carson Graham Secondary in North Vancouver and for the British Columbia Provincial Team three years in a row and was named British Columbia Provincial MVP in 2006.

Seabrook also excels off the court, graduating from the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business in May 2012 and was an Academic All Big-12 First Team selection in 2010 and Second Team selection in 2011.

“Although my time at the University of Colorado has been amazing, I am thrilled to start my professional career with Pallacanestro Bellinzona,” said Seabrook. “I am looking forward to making a difference through my hard work and leadership, and to help the team win games this season.”

Pallacanestro Bellinzona will be playing their first season in the Swiss LNA league after being promoted from the LNB last season.

“We are very excited that Julie has signed with us for the 2012-13 season,” said Pallacanestro Bellinzona Head Coach, Scott Twehues.  “Julie is going to add a lot of new things to our team which will definitely help the other players expand their game and bring this team to another level.”
