Hungary ready to roll after unveiling Final Round roster

BUDAPEST (FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017) – Hungary will ask Tijana Krivacevic and Courtney Vandersloot to carry their FIBA EuroBasket Women 2017 hopes as they confirmed their roster for the Final Round.

Krivacevic has been on fire of late and the forward will be hoping she can successfully carry the load for her country, having warmed-up for the tournament with a spectacular 30 points against Slovak Republic.

Tijana Krivacevic Zsofia Licskai Dora Medgyessy Nora Nagy-Bujdoso
Kristina Raksanyi Zsofia Simon Courtney Vandersloot Zsofia Varga

Meanwhile, the naturalized Vandersloot is one of the leading players in Europe, having catapulted Yakin Dogu Universitesi to historic EuroCup Women, Turkish Cup and Turkish Championship titles.

She will lead proceedings in the backcourt, although Hungary also have back-up in the form of veteran combo guard Zsofia Fegyverneky and Final Round debutante Dora Medgyessy, who impressed in EuroCup Women with VBW CEKK Cegled.

Head coach Stefan Svitek will also be buoyed by the return of Nora Nagy-Budjoso who also starred for Cegled and missed the event in 2015.

Hungary will play in Czech Republic, Spain and Ukraine in Group A.
