    Good start for Turkey indeed, Brazil probably still missing a couple of WNBA players.

    Great game also from Canada, that handed the first loss to Australia in its European tour, 62-55.

    Turkey topped Australia 84-80 in OT, winning the Tafer Cup.

    Trailing 78-80 with 1' to go, Nevriye Yilmaz took over the game scoring 5 pts and finishing with 32. She has certainly been the tournament MVP.
    Rachel Jarry was high for Opals with 23.

    With this excellent result (3-0) Turkey becomes one of the favorite teams for the WC.

    In another game, Brazil won over Canada 65-56.


    Update: Nevriye Yilmaz named MVP. Final standing: 1. TUR 2.BRA 3.CAN 4.AUS

    Czech Republic-Korea 57-53 in Karlovy Vary tournament. Korea somewhat surprising, closed +8 halftime.

    Box score (reported Korean players names confusing me).

    Korea sent to Czech tournament its Asia Games NT and not the WC team (which should be the one that has recently competed at the William Jones Cup).

    In Karlovy Vary tournament, Czech Republic-Serbia 77-68 (Vesela 15, Burgrova 14, Viteckova 12, Elhotova 11 - Ajdukovic & Radocaj 11).

    In the second game, Korea upset Canada 56-53 with a great come back, after the result at 1st half was 25-11 for Canada. Sin Jung-Ja 15, Kim Jung-Eun and Kim Dan-Bi 10 (hope the names are correct) - Tatham 11.
    This Korean team looks certainly stronger than the WC NT.

    Lee K.e. = Lee Kyung Eun, everyone else's name shouldn't be confusing.

    China is hosting some tourney and beating the likes of New Zealand and Slovenia by 40 or 50 pts. I have no clue what type of teams those are.
    aim low, score high

    Thnx, at first I got confused thinking that Korean WC team was the one competing in Czech Republic tournament !

    Slovenia sent its national champ club ZKK Celje to the Chinese tour. It comprises several members of Slovenian NT at various ages (Sr, U20, U18), one of them Marica Gajic was the MVP at the 2014 U20 Euro tournament Div B.

    NZL Tall Ferns look to be an experimental NT, with eight newcomers.
    http://www.basketball.org.nz/tall-fe...art-for-china/

    A so-called USA team was also involved in the China tournaments, reportedly with four WNBA (?) and Euro League players, but that's all what I know. This team beat both Tall Ferns and Slovenia, don't know the outcome with China.

    Coming far from behind (-14 pts at Q3) Czech Republic narrowly beat Canada 55-52. For Canada a "copy-paste" of yesterday's game lost to Korea.
    Eva Viteckova 15 and Alena Hanusova 13 led the winners.
    Tamara Tatham and Miranda Ayim scored 12 and 10 for Canada.
    Viteckova named MVP.

    Czech Republic 3-0, wins the tournament, followed by Canada, Korea and Serbia (all 1-2).
