June 14, 2011 - Maher Names ‘Hardworking’ British Squad

Great Britain coach Tom Maher has decided on the 12 players he will take on the country's maiden voyage in the EuroBasket Women. The Brits, who are competing in Group B of the EuroBasket Women against Belarus, the Czech Republic and Israel, have the majority of the players that finished first in their Division A group one year ago. "We have a good hardworking group," Maher said, "a mixture of experienced players with new up-and-coming talent. "We have kept a core of the squad from last year which provides consistency and a platform for continued development." Britain have one more warm-up game on Wednesday night at Slovakia before travelling to Bydgoszcz, Poland. Read more here.


June 13, 2011 - Spain, Slovakia Have Reasons To Smile

Spain's women have been beating opponents with regularity in their preparations for the EuroBasket Women. And that's without center Sancho Lyttle, a EuroLeague Women winner with Halcon Avenida back in April. Lyttle has been in the WNBA with Atlanta where she and her Dream teammates have gotten off to an 0-3 start. Veteran Amaya Valdemoro is also carrying a knock and hasn't been available and Laia Palau hasn't been fully fit, either. Spain still have a lot of talent and they needed it all to beat Turkey 58-55 in overtime on Saturday to win the Victory Cup. "As we had predicted, it was a very hard game, very physical," Spain coach Jose Ignacio Hernandez said. Read more here.


June 10, 2011 - Croatians Pay Back Czechs In Same Coin

Anyone discounting Croatia as a team that can do some damage at the EuroBasket Women had better think again. Stipe Bralic's team, 24 hours removed from a 20-point defeat to the Czech Republic, beat last year's FIBA World Championship silver medalists 86-80 on Thursday. Led by Ana Lelas' 17 points, Sandra Mandir's 16 and Iva Sliskovic's 14, Croatia battled from start to finish. It was a real confidence-booster ahead of their Group D campaign against Latvia, Greece and defending champions France. "Today we played a good 40 minutes against a very strong opponent," Croatia boss Bralic said. "The Czechs have very good shooters, especially (Eva) Viteckova, who are among the best in Europe.

May 31, 2011 - Britain Aim For Second Round

Tom Maher has claimed he will be doing ‘The Happy Dance' if his Great Britain team progress to the second phase at their first ever EuroBasket Women tournament. Having previously been coy about the true ambitions of his team when they step out in Poland, the play-caller finally outlined.  "We're all about achieving a style of play because we want the British public to be proud of this team." "The culture in Britain is such that they can handle a loss if they feel they have been represented appropriately and that's what we have to achieve." Read more here.


May 30, 2011 - Kaltsidou Sets Target For Greece

Styllani Kaltsidou is targeting a top five finish with Greece at the EuroBasket Women next month so they can fight for a place at the 2012 Olympics. Greece needed a dramatic fightback against Italy at the last EuroBasket two years ago to take fifth place and the FIBA World Championship for Women place that came with it. This year, Kaltsidou is hoping for a repeat so the team can finish what they've started by going to London next year. Read more here.


May 30, 2011 - Vincent Decides On Final 12

The coach of defending champions France, Pierre Vincent, has finalized his squad for the EuroBasket Women and brought back three veterans in Edwige Lawson-Wade, Isabelle Yacoubou and Emilie Gomis. Lawson had not played since the EuroBasket Women 2007 while injuries prevented Yacoubou and Gomis from featuring last summer. Sandrine Gruda missed the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women to rest but was a certainty to be named and is in the group. Paoline Salagnac, AnaŽl Lardy and Pauline Krawczyk are reserves. Read more here.


May 27, 2011 - Turkey, Croatia Win On Day 2 In Antalya

Turkey's women rolled to a second big victory in as many days when hammering Great Britain 73-51 at the Kezmir Tournament in Antalya. In a battle of sides warming up for the EuroBasket Women, Turkey only led 34-27 at half-time of Thursday's contest but then outscored the Brits 20-9 in the third quarter to take command for good. Nevin Nevlin had 13 points while Bahar Caglar and Nilay Kartaltepe contributed 12 apiece. It was a balanced attack for Turkey, who also got six points, six assists and three rebounds from Tugba Palazoglu. Read more here.


May 27, 2011 - FIBA Europe Mourn Loss Of Dydek

The European Basketball Community lost one of its most remarkable members on Friday, as former Poland international Malgorzata Dydek passed away in Brisbane, Australia. The 37 year old, who lived in Australia with her husband and two sons, coached a women's team in the domestic league. She had suffered a heart attack on May 19 and had since been in a medically-induced coma. "It makes me very sad to hear about a member of our basketball family passing away" said FIBA Europe Secretary General Nar Zanolin "our thoughts are with her family in Australia." FIBA Europe President Olafur Rafnsson added: "Malgorzata was one of the great representatives of our sport. It is shocking to lose her at such a young age." Dydek is survived by her husband, David, and two sons, three-year-old David and seven-month-old Alex.


May 25, 2011 - Roundup: Zara Back For Italy

When Italy hosted EuroBasket Women 2007, Francesca Zara was one of the team's most important players. Four years later and without a game in the Azzurre jersey since, Zara is back in the national side. "I'm happy to be back and wearing the blue shirt," Zara said. "(Italy coach) Giampiero Ticchi called me and within minutes, we agreed. "In recent years, I had preferred to stay out and rest during the summer, but this year I arrived at the end of the season fresher and healthier." Zara, who is now 35, had a good season playing for Umbertide coach Lorenzo Serventi in Italy's top flight. The time was right for a comeback. Read more here.


May 25, 2011 - Mood Upbeat As Turkey Play In Kepez Tournament

Turkey coach Ceyhun Yildizoglu is hoping the injury bug stays away from his players at the Kepez Tournament in Antalya, a warm-up event this week for next month's EuroBasket Women in Poland. Fresh off their workouts at a training camp in Antalya, Turkey, Yildizoglu and Co will meet Great Britain, Montenegro and Croatia in the friendly tournament. "We are taking slow but confident steps," Yildizoglu said. "We are proceeding slowly because our average age is high and we have many injury-prone players. "However, this doesn't frighten us." Read more here.


May 25, 2011 - Broken Thumb Sidelines Kotsopoulo

Greece have done a very good job this year keeping a secret that goes by the name May Kotsopoulo. People across the continent will not have heard much about this player, if anything at all, because of where she spent her rookie season. Kotsopoulo, who hails from Canada, played for DAS Ano Liosa in Greece's top flight and was, arguably, the league's top newcomer after averaging more than 15 points per game. Read more here.


May 24, 2011 - Halman A Key For The Netherlands

Twenty-four hours is a very long time in basketball. The Netherlands proved that on Sunday, when they bounced back from an 80-56 drubbing by Belgium in Sint-Katelijne-Waver the night before to beat the Belgians, 68-65. Center Naomi Halman, who is making a comeback from a long injury lay-off, had 15 points to lead the Dutch. Read more here.
