    Maria Vadeeva and Raisa Musina have joined Russian team that is preparing to play friendlies in Spain from 7-9 July. They will add size and experience (both have played with Sr NT and Vadeeva topped Russia in point and rebounds at the recent Eurobasket).

    The team is now made of 13 players:
    G: Eleonora Oleynikova, Margarita Pleskevich, Olesya Safonova, Olga Stolyar, Viktoria Zavyalova, Darya Kurilchuk
    F: Anna Zaytseva, Svetlana Kramar, Raisa Musina, Viktoria Cheren

    With this addition, Russia becomes one of the tournament favorites.

    USA team practicing hard:

    We really worked together well to cook the pastas. I didn’t know how they were going to go, but they came together really well. And then we cooked up the shrimp and chicken for people to put on top of the pastas.”

    In the final day of Spilimbergo tournament USA finished 3-0 with an unimpressive win over Latvia 64-56. US team struggled in scoring and wasn't able to extend its lead in the 2nd half. Ruthy Hebard again led USA with 15 pts, followed by Tyasha Harris with 14, but as many as six players didn't score a single FG.

    Italy added to yesterday's roster Olbis Futo Andrè a 6-3 athletic center who was impressive at the Euro U20 for her rebounding ability and could make an impact under the basket if selected.

    Spain finished 2-1, Latvia 1-2 and Italy 0-3.

    China's official Fiba roster still includes center Yueru Li, who actually is with Sr NT at the Asian Cup (23-29 July). China recently played exhibition games in France with a 10-member team (neither Yueru Li nor Yijia Cao were in the roster).

    First tournament game and big upset, as Japan beat favorite Australia 66-61, despite 21 points of Magbegor. Tough game and deserved win of Japan over a sloppy Australian team that had a bad shooting day from most of its backcourt players (1/20 FG3!). Takahara led a balanced Japan attack with 12.

    In the only other two interesting games, France held off newcomer Latvia 69-60 after comfortably leading at halftime, while Italy lost to China and its overwhelming frontcourt (Xu Han and Yu Tang). Chinese team took an early lead with Italy's bigs Cubaj and Madera struggling and never relinquished, even when Italian team closed the gap in the final minutes, to finish 74-63. Han and Tang scored together 31 points, while from the Italian side Olbis Futo Andre led the scoring with 18. Chinese team had just seven players entering the game. Russia and Hungary scored 100+ points in onslaughts of Egypt and Mexico. In another mismatch Canada easily beat weak Korea collecting as many as 81 rebounds (vs 21...).

    US beat Mali 95-58, offense was good for the most part (especially considering Hebard had early fouls and didn't do much), rebounded well, defense not so great IMO. Interesting game against China tomorrow.

    Spain eventually pulled away from Puerto Rico, but they didn't look particularly talented. OTOH neither did their men and they had a good run.
