Probably explains why Whalen is retiring. She's afraid to face such stiff competition.

Team USA could win their group with their "D" team. Consisting of Sydney Colson, Rachel Banham, Marissa Coleman, Dearica Hamby & Jennifer Hamson.

It's true, though you could have posted that yesterday, before the groups had been determined, and it would have been no less true.

Upsets can happen, and at least there's some crossover between the halves with the way they've set up the system, but a Spain-USA semi-final looks pretty damn likely. Bit more competition on the opposite side.

Hope everyone's booked theirr accommodation already. It was starting to look like rat trap or pretty expensive, without much inbetween, last time I checked. Smile

It's not a great seeding system IMO if it doesn't pave the way for a 1 vs 2 gold medal game.

Same can be said for Brazil, who somehow managed to lose to the US Virgin Islands in the Americas Cup qualifying.

Was Vadeeva a part of this “bombing out”?

Pretty incredible - they can rig elections in foreign countries, but can't fix a FIBA tournament.

Oh crap

For what it's worth, I had another look today via a different website or two and there are still plenty of options should anyone want to join us in sunny Tenerife in September.

One thing I would mention - if looking at flights, don't get locked in to searching for ones to the North airport. The games are on the north side, but there are an awful lot more flights into the South airport (at least there are from where I'm coming from). So I'll almost certainly fly in to the South and then get transport across, which I woud expect will also be the easiest route for a lot of other people.

Things just haven't been the same for the Russian NT ever since Becky Hammonova retired. Wink

Seriously. There are two, maybe three countries in the world that can actually give the United States a game for a full forty minutes. Unless all three of them end up in the same group as the US, whichever group the US ends up in is going to be a "joke."

We’ve had that core stable leadership group with success for a long time. You never can be too sure how good they’ll be without them. A time or two more with Bird seems wisest.

Interesting exhibition game in China as the hosts beat Belgium 65-48. Belgium had their best available lineup and Meesseman had 25 points. China was a little different than the group that toured the United States and did not have Shao Ting.

Wauters is with them on the trip, but she has not played in either game.

Belgium 67 China 64 for one win at least. Suddenly Han has become a slightly more intriguing prospect than Li because we have seen a lot less of her.

Latvia beat Finland 96-46 in an exhibition:
http://www.fibalivestats.com/u/LBS/867871/bs.html

It's hard to draw any conclusions here as Latvia had a strong team, but not their full squad while Finland had a very weak roster.

China continues to be busy as they played an exhibition tournament in the Czech Republic.

The beat a weakened Turkey:
http://www.fibalivestats.com/u/CBFFE/885436/bs.html

They also handled a close to full strength Romania:
http://www.fibalivestats.com/u/CBFFE/885438/bs.html

They beat the shorthanded hosts:
http://www.fibalivestats.com/u/CBFFE/885439/bs.html

Interestingly, both Li and Han were both consistently strong. It's never too early to figure out which 2019 picks you can stump your friends with.

China's tour continued in Turkey, where they beat the hosts 74-71:

Neither team was at their strongest or playing rotations like they cared about the outcome of the game.

Canada beats Turkey handily as exhibitions continued.

Canada beat Turkey again and then their last exhibition was cancelled as Turkey needs to reload.

Spain beat Japan at home twice narrowly. I have only seen the stats for the second game:

The quirks of international basketball - flying four hours to the edge of Africa to watch multiple games featuring a team that revolves around Jazmon Gwathmey. Laughing

Is there any point to some of these preliminary squads that have been announced? Surely Spain are going to find room to add Ndour (and France for Miyem)? Not like Spain have a host of alternatives for that naturalised spot, or a clutch of top-tier posts blocking her way.

Latvia hosted an exhibition tournament over the weekend.

They beat Sweden 67-62 on Friday:

They lost to Russia 71-66 on Saturday:
http://www.fibalivestats.com/u/LBS/867873/bs.html

They beat Ukraine 80-59 on Sunday:

Raisa Musina had difficulties shooting all weekend, but she did dish out 9 assists on Friday against Ukraine in unrelated news.
