    USA Basketball has unveiled a new plan for keeping a number of players from going overseas while keeping them in shape for the WNBA and a handful of national team games before the Olympics. Chelsea Gray is one of eight players committed to being a part of that program:

    Sofia Roma is one of the players selected by Puerto Rico for the upcoming Pan American Games. I believe that they still have to make one cut from the list before playing in games. Since it is a non-FIBA event, I will cover the tournament like it was made up of exhibition games and they can be seen in the United States on ESPN3.

    Eric Boateng is one of the players listed in Great Britain's squad for upcoming EuroBasket qualifiers. It's very borderline for him to be among the best twelve players these days, but he does have plenty of experience and it is good news that he healthy and available to play after having his club season ended by injury.

    Denmark already qualified from Group E, but finished with a perfect record after beating Albania 68-57 despite 16 points from naturalized player Dallas Moore.
    Standings: Denmark 4-0, Belarus 2-2, Albania 0-4

    The group that entered the day with the most uncertainty was H and it lived up to all expectations as Switzerland fell behind in their quest to advance, but not only won the game, but turned it around enough to flip the tiebreakers by 5 points with a 109-85 win as Clint Capela had 18 points and 15 rebounds. Iceland has a number of former collegians as Martin Hermannsson had 28 points and Davidson's Jon Axel Gudmundsson had 10 points and 8 rebounds.
    Standings: Switzerland 2-2, Iceland 2-2, Portugal 2-2
