Eagle River’s Kelsey Griffin returned from injury in trimphant fashion, helping the Australia women’s national basketball team to a 113-53 win over Mozambique on April 6 in the opening round of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

A naturalized Australian citizen, Griffin had been sidelined for several months with a hip injury, according to an account in the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame blog. She scored six points, grabbed nine rebounds and dished five assists in 19 minutes against Mozambique.
