Now in a midseason format!

I will probably write an article about them this week in anticipation of games Saturday and Wednesday. Some pluses and some minuses with the new method, but I will want to see how it plays out before commenting fully. No interruption of the WNBA season at least.

Not sure what I am rooting for except perhaps for the best for our WNBAlien.

Heh, thanks. Still deciding whether I'm going to make the trek up to Manchester for the game on the Wednesday night. Might wait until the double-header in February.

Holland is playing against Croatia and they have Zellous Confused

Sweden's not in the Olympics, right?

I see that Sweden has been looking to 2017, and it looks like Zahui and Abdi will be on that national team. So they'll both probably be missing some games from their WNBA teams that season.

What do you think of the squad? Not having Fagbenle hurts, but it is harder for other people to make excuses for not showing up.

I knew I was forgetting at least one of our international posters. I wonder if the Orange Blizzards experiment will provide any help. Halman also seems to be in form these days.

Fagbenle's a big loss, but assuming she's showing up (and her latest tweet would suggest she is) the addition of Leedham should be huge in the opposite direction. With her back and Vanderwal a vastly better player than she used to be, we actually have two viable perimeter scorers, which seems insane. New coach, so we'll see how that works out. I don't expect to win the group but hopefully we can scrape together enough wins to finish second and get in.

16-team tournament rather than the 20 from last time, so it's a little more difficult for the fringe teams to get in.

I doubt if it will help that much. They played the young players a lot and not the veterans (Halman, Broring, van Grinsven etc.). Yeah Naomi Halman is definitely our best player at the moment. She is doing very well in France and even held her own in the Euroleague (first backing up Mistie Bass and then starting at center). Really like her game and footwork.

Too bad that we have 2 of our biggest talents (Laura Cornelius and Emese Hof) playing for Miami right now. So they will miss these games.

Upset of the day. Holland beats Croatia 76-67 Shocked Very Happy
Zera Butter MVP of the game with 9 of her 23 pts in the final 5 min of the game Cool If only she went to the USA a couple years ago she could of gone to a good team. Amazing scorer and very hard to stop.

http://www.fibaeurope.com/season_2015.coid_xhkl58lQG62Qt6yeT-xn52.articleMode_on.html

Zellous only scored 6 pts in 18 minutes off the bench for Croatia

Sancho Lyttle back in the Spanish team (that stuffed Sweden), so they haven't switched to Ndour for good with their naturalised spot - unfortunately for Dream fans.

Decent effort from GB but lost in Montenegro. Probably the toughest game they'll face in the group, and need to bounce back against Italy on Wednesday night. Have to beat them at home, ideally by as much as possible, to have any chance of making it through.

We're virtually out after two games, which is rather disappointing. Would now have to win in Italy and beat Montenegro at home to have any chance at all. Shame no one besides Handy could hit a damn shot today.

Holland won in a very tight game. If they can manage to win in Croatie then they are in good position to qualify. Who would of thought in this group

I continue to hate that if GB are playing in some tiny European outpost, I can invariably find and access a stream with a couple of clicks. If we're playing 200 miles north of me in my own country, not a chance in hell.

And @gbbasketball don't even bother replying to my messages asking politely about the possibility of webcasts.

Tough loss for Holland. Game at home against Estonia will be crucial. They have to win that one and hope Croatia loses against Estonia

Nice win for GB over Montenegro. Unfortunate both that I couldn't see it, and that it's likely meaningless due to the two double-digit losses in the opening games. We'll still need to win in Italy (ideally by a lot of points), and get some help elsewhere, to make it through.

Greece: likely none
Hungary: either Quigley or Vandersloot
Italy: likely none
Latvia: likely none
Montenegro: Dubljevic
Russia: Prince? Belyakova
Serbia: Dabovic, Petrovic
Slovakia: Toliver? (probably not)
Slovenia: Baric (just for Shades)
Spain: Lyttle or Ndour (probably Ndour), Cruz, Xargay, mythical Alba Torrens (note that Spain is already qualified for 2018)
Turkey: Sanders
Ukraine: likely none

Wow, that certainly changes the USAB picture. So hmmm does that move Diggins up in the point guard pecking order with Odyssey and DRob or does Moriah leap frog everyone?

Sloot must have figured the USA team wasn't in the cards

Quote:
"I told Moriah, the spots that are the most available moving forward are the perimeter spots; Sue [Bird], Diana [Taurasi], Lindsay [Whalen]. This might be the last go-around for those guys. And look around; there isn't another point guard right now that can compare to Sue. But that means someone has an opportunity to step into that role, especially this summer [in the WNBA] if she gets onto the right team, with the right teammates and right style of play. If you are a college point guard right now, you have a chance going forward to be a part of this. It's been the strength of our team and it's not going to be anymore."

WOW. I'd assume this moves Robinson, Jefferson & Diggins as the top choices to replace Bird & Whalen in 2020.

Hmmm...who is being quoted here? Geno? We've been complaining for a while about USAB not properly grooming young guards or "passing the torch" so to speak which is what happened with Bird and Taurasi. I suppose this may have been the plan all along.

Can you not read between the lines? He's saying nobody in camp but the old school guards are good enough, so that would include Robinson and Diggins. Of course, Diggins wasn't in camp this last time and Robinson was hindered by the Achilles.... but I would think Geno would factor in stuff like that before making such a statement.

To me it looks like he wants to make Jefferson his new #1 on the retirement of the old school guards. It also sounds like he's gonna stick around to make this happen.

Heck, why doesn't UConn declare it's independence, then Geno can have his team and the USA can have the rest that actually deserve to be there.

Without wishing to turn this into yet another UConn bitching thread, that'd give us a much more interesting final than we tend to end up with. UConn might not be as deep as Team USA, but Bird/Jefferson, Taurasi, Moore, Stewart, Charles would be a nice place to start.

Not to derail, but for what it's worth, I have a strong feeling that the next great American point guard is a rising sophomore at Oregon.

I see Diana potential in that player , but her dribbling needs to improve . She has ALL the tools to be the next great american guard for sure .

Luckily for the USA, she's already played for the United States in FIBA competitions, so the fact that she can get Romanian citizenship (both her parents were born there) will only affect her Bosman status (if that's still the name of the rule).

Actually, that's not quite how it works in most leagues, including the EuroLeague and EuroCup. In those, citizenship does not matter if you are not eligible to play for a European national team. Some domestic leagues will recognize European (or Cotonou) passports regardless of national team status, but not all of them.

Thanks for the clarification. So Ionescu basically will be considered an American in professional basketball regardless of whether she holds Romanian citizenship because she has played for the USA in FIBA competitions.

Bentley, Vaughn?

But so far it doesn't look like the Sun miss Bentley, the Liberty miss Vaughn or Prince, and the Dantas is playing pretty well for the Dream so Lyttle is not being missed a lot.

The Dream miss Lyttles defense and her being there makes sure that they get Dantas points off the bench
