Yao Ming's girl-friend to play in WNBA
www.chinaview.cn 2004-03-12 17:07:28

  
    BEIJING, March 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Three elite players on China's women's basketball team are almost set to join the US league, WNBA.

    Among them is Ye Li from Shanghai, who's widely rumored to be the girl-friend of the Houston Rockets star Yao Ming.

    Already given a green light from China's basketball authorities, the three, which also include Miao Lijie and Chen Luyun, will attend the WNBA draft in New York.

    Before formerly joining their prospective American teams, they will have to finish their domestic league matches and some national team training sessions for the Athens Olympics.

    But they'll not be the first from China to play there. Former national team center Zheng Haixia played for Los Angeles in the 1990s.
