The 2005-06 US college season is about to begin and we take a look of the Tongan women that will be participating this year


Jessica Fisiikava 5’10” G Junior California Baptist (NAIA)

Fisiikava had a impressive sophomore year at Umpqua CC and she has transferred to an NAIA school.  Expected her to contribute a lot of the bench in her junior year.


Fatai Hala'api'api (186-F/C) Junior Eastern Kentucky (NCAA Division 1)

Hala’api’api had her sophomore year cut short because of a season ending injury.  A dominating player in the post with great shot blocking abilities Hala’api’api can bring a lot to EKU in the hope of getting them into the NCAA tournament


Meliame Halaufia 6’3” F Junior Azusa Pacific University (NAIA)

Halaufia has come from a year off and will have a lot to contribute into the team, giving the team’s lack of height.  Question is whether she will start or come off the bench.


Ofa Tulikihihifo (180-G/F)  Senior CSU-Northridge (NCAA Division 1)

Has had an excellent career at CSU Northridge and if she continues to excel during her senior year she should be considered a WNBA draft prospect.  If she doesn’t make it to the WNBA, Europe is a also another option. 


Salote Tupou (180-F/C) RS-Freshman CSU Fullerton (NCAA Division 1)

Tupou got redshirted last year and is ready to see some limited playing time for the CSU Fullerton as a freshman.
