Capital coach Donna Finnie, the first Scot to take charge of an American collegiate first division basketball side, will make her debut as Head Coach of Houston Baptist College in an exhibition game at the Sharp Arena in Houston, Texas on Sunday.

The St Augustine’s FP will be steering the Huskies into the relative unknown as they have entered a new conference this season and, among some formidable opponents, are the renowned Baylor team, from Waco in Texas. Their opposition on Sunday are UT Tyler.

The Huskies play their first competitive game against UT Arlington next Friday but do not play their first conference opponents until January 2.

Finnie has one Scot in her team, the former Cumbernauld and Rocks player Erin McGarrachan, who frequently topped the rebounding stats for the Huskies last season.
