No changes for Fousek and Czech Republic
Thankfully for head coach Richard Fousek, he will be able to call upon the bulk of the team who landed Czech Republic their first ever FIBA U16 Women’s European Championship crown last year.
|Czech Republic roster for the 2016 FIBA U17 Women’s World Championship
|Kristyna Brabencova||Anezka Kopecka||Julie Pospisilova||Natalie Raskova|
|Anna Rylichova||Veronika Sipova||Adela Smutna||Karolina Sotolova|
|Karolina Szcotkova||Barbora Tomancova||Tereza Vitulova||Veronika Vorackova|
Veronika Sipova made the All Star Five last year and will spearhead the challenge for the Czechs, who have a hugely challenging start with Italy and the USA in their opening phase pool.
Fortunately Julie Pospisilova has held the hot-hand during preparation and will head to Zaragoza full of confidence.
Indeed Coach Fousek will only have to be concerned with strategy and not worry about chemistry or continuity, since all of his players from what was a famous night in Matosinhos will once again suit up.
