Hungary are ridiculous. Seems like they're naturalising a new player every six months. Bit troubling for Phoenix as well considering the injury to Taurasi. Turner would be a key element in filling that hole.

Preliminary rosters are starting to be named.

Hungary intends to use Yvonne Turner as their naturalized player.

France did not also bring in Gabby Williams. I am still curious about her qualification for citizenship since France doesn't do snap naturalization, but nobody seems to know.


Her mother is French.

Quote:
“My sister and I got matching tattoos saying nothing will break our bond in French,” Williams said. “My mom is French, and the rose, she has roses tattooed on her body. Especially now with her (sister)being pregnant, we have gotten even closer and even in the future I can look at it and know nothing can break our bond.”

That's close enough that they should have known to get her citizenship from a young age. I wonder if that was the case or it was a more recent move.

As has long been reported, Kiah Stokes will be naturalized by Turkey. She and Quanitra Hollingsworth have both been called up so that might mean that she will be in their preparations fighting for the spot.

awhom111, any idea if Kennedy Leonard counts as naturalised for GB or not? I could imagine her making the final 12 is she's British, but if she's just 'British' I doubt she beats out Karlie Samuelson (assuming she counts as naturalised, which I never 100% confirmed). This is all so ridiculous...

No idea. She only played U20 so there's no real evidence on when she got a passport. As far as anyone is aware, Samuelson is naturalized, but that could always be flexible.

On that subject, Latvia may be shrinking the list of countries never to field a naturalized player as they intend to give Shey Peddy a passport.

Also, to answer my own question from a long time ago, the Kastaneks are ethnic Czechs, but Marissa will be a naturalized player for Poland when they play qualifiers for the next tournament, although Julie McBride may not be ready to give up the spot yet.

Keep an eye on Hannah Jump, who will be a freshman at Stanford and is a British citizen.

Unlike her name, she's a 6-1 shooter.

Great Britain's final roster includes a player who was knocking around the fourth division in France? I don't even need to mention who since Richyyy would only need one guess to figure out which one.

They don't publish full stats at that level so I can't be too sure she played all the games, but they couldn't finish above .500 even with a star?

The really scary thing is that Savannah Wilkinson couldn't beat her out for a spot on the final 12.

Yes thanks very much.
If I understand this right: http://www.fiba.basketball/womenseurobasket/2019/full-schedule.pdf

4 teams advance from A-B and 4 from C-D. IYO who is favored, who is possible, and who is a big underdog in these groups?

4 group winners go straight through to quarter-finals, 2nd vs 3rd crossover games decide who goes through to play them. Spain and France would be comfortable favourites in their groups, Group C's a bit of a mish-mash, and Group D is the inevitable Group of Death. Top 6 qualify for the Olympic Qualifying tournaments, so those 5th-8th playoff games are going to be as hard-fought as any games in the tournament.

Right now, neither. Won't be heading for Latvia/Serbia either way, but current plan is to head back to France if England win tonight. I may have a spare ticket for the (currently hypothetical) semi-final if anyone can get to France and doesn't mind sitting in the England end...

Excuse me while I book a cheap flight to Paris from Denver to help you cheer on Lucy Bronze, Steph Houghton, and company. Absolutely brilliant from them today.

Alas, I'm using all my vacation time to visit family in Scotland and Portugal later this summer.

I was pleasantly surprised that Great Britain beat Latvia today. In my mind, this is a pretty significant upset; however, upon reviewing the FIBA rankings, they occupy only one rung below. That's a pretty great step forward for Samuelson, Leedham, and Fagbenle and company.

Hungary is in the quarterfinals and Turkey has been eliminated. Slovenia and Italy advance with the game between them determining which place they finish in.

Spain, France, Sweden, and Serbia have all also advanced, but have not clinched quarterfinals places.

I'm not counting a single solitary chicken, but if someone had offered me games against Montenegro and Hungary to make the semi-freaking-finals (and the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments) I'd have bitten their damn hand off. Proud of the performances GB have put in either way.

so Zahui could be done tomorrow?
Vadeeva and Meesseman on Tuesday?
Sounds like Richyyy is confident about GB game.

And then are the Thursday losers done as well? For instance if Russia beats Italy but loses to Spain, is Russia then out...or do they play in a losers bracket?

GB-Montenegro and Sweden-Latvia are today, Italy-Russia and Belgium-Slovenia tomorrow. Losers of those four just go home. Losers of the quarter-finals stick around because the losers bracket is hugely important for potential Olympic qualification. Top six stay alive for that, hence the importance of 5th-8th.

And I wouldn't say I'm confident. We've just looked decent so far and have a pretty reasonable draw. A lot of these teams can all beat each other on any given day.

Temi Fagbenle and Karlie Samuelson combine for 57 points as Team GB steamrolls a Montenegro team that upset the Czech Republic.
