“This is a group of talented and committed players, who I hope will develop highly to enhance GB women’s basketball. It is also great for women’s basketball in the UK that seven players come from the WBBL.
“I am happy with the work we have done and I hope this will be shown during the championship in Montenegro”.
The final squad is as follows:
Samantha Clement – Cornell University (USA)
Jessica Davies – Lipscomb University (USA)
Abigail Johnson – Barking Abbey Crusaders (GBR)
