GB Women at EuroBasket 2019
Venue: Riga, Latvia Date: 27 June – 7 July

Head coach Jose Maria Buceta says last weekend’s games have have convinced him his Great Britain Women’s team is ready for the EuroBasket finals in Latvia.

GB gained revenge over Sweden, who had previously beaten them, and lost narrowly to European champions Spain in a tournament in Madrid last weekend.

“We’ve been getting better game by game and and the progress has been good,” said Buceta, GB’s coach since 2015.

“So now we go to the tournament and I think we’re ready for EuroBasket.”

The performance against his native Spain – a two-point defeat – was probably the best of the six-game warm-up programme.

“We were playing the number two in the world, Olympic finalists and and I think we played a good game.” said Buceta. “But our main concern was to learn in order to prepare for EuroBasket.”

If GB can qualify from the first phase in Riga, they would travel to Belgrade for the quarter-finals, from which six of the eight teams will qualify for a place in next year’s Olympic qualifying tournaments.

The return of their two WNBA players – 2012 Olympian Temi Fagbenle and new recruit Karlie Samuelson – has added depth to the squad which will face Latvia, Spain and Ukraine in their first-round group.

“Every qualifying game that I’ve played in – and here – has been close,” said Samuelson after the back-to-back wins over Canada.

“But I love coming here with the team atmosphere and the girls – it’s my favourite team to play on.”

GB squad: Mollie Campbell (Club – Leicester; age 24; caps 10), Stef Collins (Cardiff – 36, 149), Georgia Jones (Manchester – 29, 60), Cheridene Green (Tennessee Uni, US – 23, 6), Temi Fagbenle (Polkowice, Pol – 26, 52), Chantelle Handy (Battipaglia, Ita – 32, 120), Johannah Leedham (Polkowice, Pol – 32, 81), Janice Monakana (Sevenoaks – 23, 8), Hannah Shaw (Cortegada, Ita – 28, 11), Karlie Samuelson (Braine, Bel – 24, 8), Eilidh Simpson (Dijon, Fra – 26, 38), Rachael Vanderwal (Gernika, Spa – 36, 104).

  20. Today, I went to the beach with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  30. Vikasa yoga retreat was designed and built by a yogi, with just one thing in mind – practice of yoga! And it is just perfect for that! It is set in a spectacular ocean cliff-side location of Koh Samui, Thailand. Koh Samui enjoys perfect weather almost year round and offers a culturally rich environment to further inspire you. Vikasa is the ideal place to practice yoga, find like-minded people, eat healthy food, and evolve in an amazing natural environment. https://vikasayoga.com/ Vikasa is Sanskrit for becoming visible, expanding and shining forth. Inspired by the notion of personal integration and evolution, our founder, Kosta Miachin developed the Vikasa Method to reflect his deeply held belief that yoga can be a tool of transformation: a means to helping individuals evolve physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually. Kosta resides and teaches yoga in Koh Samui most of the year when he is not otherwise training or teaching in other countries. Born in Eastern Europe, with extensive time spent in Canada, Europe, America and Asia, Kosta is very much a global yogi with a global vision. Kosta’s passion for yoga blossomed in 2004 when he set out on his own journey of self-discovery.
