    Russia among the Top 3 if Mariya Vadeeva plays. She's age eligible but looks fully engaged with Sr NT. Euro champ France could add to the favorites as well, imo.

    Japan preliminary roster:

    Japan could aim at 3rd or 2nd place in its group, as Australia only looks out of reach..

    USA Basketball announced a 33-player list invited to May 18-21 trials:
    https://www.usab.com/news-events/new...-athletes.aspx

    Big names missing from 2016 U18 Americas champs, MVP Lauren Cox and Rellah Boothe. Also missing Amber Ramirez and Valerie Higgins. That makes eight players back from U18 team.

    nice squad, another gold I think.
    Russia might be a handful in the front court though.

    Four-nation tournaments in China:

    China U19 70-66 USA All-Stars
    China U19 81-51 University of Regina (Canada)
    China U19 89-46 Lithuania U20
    China U19 82-42 University of Regina (Canada)

    More info here: http://netscoutsbasketball.com/category/blog/

    China U19 won those games without their best player Li Yueru (200cm, 1999), now with the Senior NT. They still have 205cm Han Xu (b. 1999).

    Li Yueru btw started in China senior team's first exhibition game, 100-63 blowout win against Senegal. She was obviously nervous and fumbled at least 3 layups, but was otherwise active on both ends and received many touches. She's not ready to play in the senior level yet, but has some serious potential, at least for China. She is tall with treetrunk legs, quite mobile and agile for that weight, and seems to understand the game. Just needs more experience. Considering the Asian Cup and U19 World Cup run almost concurrently Li Yueru will definitely play in U19 worlds.

    China have a shot at a medal if they can get there backcourt working.
    No real quality backup to Jiaqi Wang though.

    Well, these are good results from China U19, playing older teams. USA All-Stars are mainly made of former NCAA players, though not high level. Best known are two from UCLA Nicole Kornet and Kari Korver as well as former South Florida's Alisia Jenkins who is now active in Spain.

    French team preliminary roster of 18 announced:
    http://www.ffbb.com/1ere-etape-au-temple-sur-lot

    Only six players from the 2016 U18 Euro champs are included, among them Tima Pouye and Kadiatou Sissoko.

    U18 Euro MVP Alexia Chartereau seems to be engaged with Sr NT, Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi, Marie-Paule Foppossi and Ana Tadic are in the U20 rosters. Maybe some of them could join later the U19 WC team.

    Eurobasket is in 40 odd days time and u19 WC is at least 70 days away. Plenty of time to rejoin the WC squad you would think.

    Somewhat surprising, former U17 2016 WC captain and all-selection Jasmine Simmons is out.

    USA final roster:

    Bella Alarie 6-5 (Princeton)
    Jeannie Boehm * 6-3 (Harvard)
    Chennedy Carter * 5-9 (HS 2017)
    Crystal Dangerfield 5-6 (UConn)
    Tyasha Harris * 5-10 (South Carolina)
    Ruthy Hebard * 6-4 (Oregon)
    Joyner Holmes 6-3 (Texas)
    Kayla Overbeck 6-1 (Vanderbilt)
    Reili Richardson 5-10 (Arizona State)
    Alecia Sutton 6-0 (Texas)
    Megan Walker * 6-1 (HS 2017)
    Christyn Williams 5-10 (HS 2018)

    * 2016 U18 Americas team members.

    https://twitter.com/usabasketball
    https://www.usab.com/womens/u19/roster.aspx

    Selection committee chose nine players with NCAA experience, leaving out HS stars like Cooks, Collier and Westbrook. Youngest player is Williams (2016 U17 WC team 2nd scorer). Dangerfield is at her second U19 WC. Among NCAA players, Hebard and Holmes were prominent in the past season. Somewhat surprising choice Alarie was a later sub of Tori McCoy, who withdrew.

    From first impression, it's however difficult to find here the same level of Aja Wilson and Napheesa Collier (2015 U19 WC).

    Russia prelim roster:

    Guards: Darya Kurilchuk *, Kseniya Sharova, Olesya Safonova, Olga Stolyar, Irina Miroshnikova;
    Fw/Wings: Darya Ignatova, Anastasiya Kirillova, Anastasiya Komarova *, Maiya Safiulina, Ekaterina Gunchenko *, Anastasiya Shuvagina, Maryam Banna, Anna Zajtseva, Ekaterina Kryuchkova;
    Centers: Aleksandra Ivanova, Sofya Kornienko, Darya Kosulnikova *.

    * played in 2016 U18 team that finished 3rd at EC.

    It's quite a new team, without top talents Mariya Vadeeva, Raisa Musina (both currently engaged with Sr NT) and also Kamilla Ogun.

    Monique Conti 5'5" 1999
    Abby Cubillo 5'3" 1999
    Jazmin Shelley 5'9" 2000
    Samantha Simons 6'1" 2000
    Maddison Rocci 5'6" 1998

    Eziyoda Magbegor 6'4" 1999
    Lara Mcspadden 6'4" 1999
    Zitina Aokuso 6'3" 1998

    http://basketball.net.au/australian-...-19-world-cup/

    It's a tall team (eight players above 1.83) and mainly relying on the talented 2016 U17 WC squad.
