    Europe usually holds their Division A and Division B tournaments at the same time for each age group, but that was not the case for the U16 Girl's tournaments.

    Since Chelsea Gray is one of the players who has committed to additional national team duty instead of overseas club club, she gets a feature article from USA Basketball:
    https://www.usab.com/news-events/new...y-feature.aspx

    The European U16 Girl's Championship concluded in Skopje, North Macedonia today. Russia beat Lithuania 73-66, but the two teams along with Spain and France had already qualified for next year's U17 World Championship with quarterfinal wins on Tuesday. The last spot from Europe went to Italy after a 62-54 win over Belgium. At the other end of the standings, Turkey and Sweden were dropped down a division after losses yesterday and Poland joined them after a 68-56 loss as Denmark, which had been completely abject in all of their other games, managed to play well enough when it mattered to get the wins they needed to stay in the top division.
    Final Standings:
    Russia
    Lithuania
    Spain
    France
    Italy
    Belgium

    Dawn Staley is having more interesting player availability issues than Popovich. It is not due to players not wanting to play, but instead a result of the upcoming Americas Championship being during the WNBA playoffs. They are rounding up players for a camp this week:
    https://www.usab.com/news-events/new...ng-roster.aspx

    Chelsea Gray will not be involved now that her team has won in the playoffs. Elizabeth Williams is expected to attend though.

    Elizabeth Williams was named to the USA team and Sofia Roma was named to the Puerto Rico team as they play for the Americas Championship starting Sunday on ESPN+.

    https://www.usab.com/news-events/new...eam-named.aspx

    The USA team only had 11 current pros trying out for it so UConn's Olivia Nelson-Ododa took the 12th spot. Jewell Loyd ended up not being able to participate so the last spot went to Khadijah Sessions, who played for coach Dawn Staley in college, but has only ever played 7 professional games, last playing organized basketball three years ago. We can all only wonder what kind of scandal this would be if this happened on the men's side.

    Cool opportunity for Williams to play with Tina Charles and Sylvia Fowles! Be interesting to see what the rotation of bigs looks like; you'd have to guess that Fowles is a shoe-in to start (though that could be my Lynx bias speaking), but things could go a bunch of different ways from there, with Charles, Williams, Dolson all players you'd likely primarily describe as centers.

    Good showing for Williams (and, let's be honest, everybody on the squad) as Team USA just absolutely rolls, 110-31 (oof). Boxscore here.

    Elizabeth Williams and the United States opened up AmeriCup play with a 110-31 win over Paraguay. Elizabeth had 7 points and 12 rebounds in 20 minutes.http://www.fiba.basketball/womensame...A#tab=boxscore

    Sofia Roma and Puerto Rico closed the day with an 80-55 win over Cuba. Sofia played 10 minutes. Ex-Oregon State player Ali Gibson had 14 points and 6 rebounds, ex-Rhode Island player Tayra Melendez had 12 points, Isalys Quinones, who just finished her Dartmouth career, had 11 points and 9 rebounds, and Stony Brook's India Pagan had 10 points.http://www.fiba.basketball/womensame...o#tab=boxscore

    Tina Charles will never ever claim to be a center even if it is best for her in certain lineups.

    Looks like Dawn is going with:
    Canada/Ogunbowale
    DeShields/Sykes
    Collier/Samuelson
    Charles/Dolson
    Fowles/Williams

    Nelson-Ododa saw time early while Sessions only played garbage time. Given the players available, her rotation makes sense although she was trying some interesting combinations, including the no point guard lineup.

    As I complained about earlier, if the senior men's team could have put together a strong enough team to win the World Cup, the United States would have been the holders of every single available FIBA title at the same time, but now they will have to wait at least another four years. I am not sure that we have ever simultaneously held all the trophies and it would have been a tremendous accomplishment.

    Sofia Roma had 2 points in 3 minutes as Puerto Rico lost the bronze medal game 95-66 to Brazil. Ex-DII player Dayshalee Salaman had 15 points. In the win, WNBA player Damiris Dantas had 28 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists and ex-WNBA player Erika De Souza had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

    Unfortunately, Chelsea Gray will miss the chance to play in Northern California, but will play in three other college tour games ahead of being a planned member of a team that will play three games against South American teams who are trying to join the United States in the Olympics.

    Also as part of the new format, Mozambique will host Africa's tournament. New Zealand will host one Asia-Oceania tournament while Malaysia will host the other as a neutral site.

    Chelsea Gray joined the United States team for their exhibition tour shortly after her wedding. The big news is that they lost their last exhibition to Oregon today. The team heads to Argentina next for games on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The games do not mean anything for the team since they have already qualified for the Olympics, but the other teams are trying to advance to the final round. Sofia Roma was named to the Puerto Rico team as they play in the other group in Canada:
