The New Zealand women's basketball team will be bolstered by a couple of its US college players for the second leg of their China tour.

Stella Beck and Penina Davidson are joining the Tall Ferns in Inner Mongolia for the second four nations tournament against the hosts, Montenegro and the Czech Republic.

Toni Edmondson led the team in scoring in their first three games, but she expects to shoulder less of a burden when the team's at full-strength.

Edmondson says she'll still need to be contributing in some form, whether it's with rebounds, assists or steals.


The Tall Ferns' first game is against China tomorrow night.
