Jamaica advances

Center Simone Edwards’ dreams of playing in the Olympics are getting closer.
Edwards, a Storm original who retired in May, is playing with her native Jamaican national team.
The Jamaican women won bronze medals in the Central Games in Mexico City this week. Jamaica defeated Puerto Rico, 71-67, for the final spot to the 2007 FIBA Americas Championship in Chile, which is the final stage for the country to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Edwards, a 6-foot-4 post player, led her team with 17 points.
Jamaica lost to defending champion Cuba for a chance to play in the title game. Cuba and Mexico automatically advanced to the Americas Championship by advancing to the Central Games championship.
