    hey. i'll be starting my first year at lse this fall. i love to do sports and intend to try out for the basketball team.

    im quite a good player, represented my high school back in my country. but im rather short. just approximately 5'9.

    i was wondering how tall on average are the school team players? or do you know the height of the shortest guy on the team? (so as not to get my hopes too high..)

    thanks

    nah. im miles away from dunking. tt's y im concerned about the average height of the team. if every1 is like taller than 6 foot, i'd know my chances r slim.

    but PGs are about that height. + just because you're short doesn't mean you can't play xD

    I had a friend who was captain at my school, went to LSE and barely made the team, but I think he's moved up the starting now, not too sure. I know he's played in some games because I saw photos of him playing on fb. I play bball too, but not that well, and certainly not well enough to get on a uni team lol!

Hope I get to play with you guys and have fun =P
