Seriously who picks this crap! I am so over this, as a coach for over 15 years trying to develop some of these kids to just watch talent be over looked.

How can a player who had the second lowest points and second lowest rebounds (as a big) makes the squad while the top scorer in the team who has also finishes with more rebounds more fouls against doesnt.

Connections over talent again

If king gets an Aussie passport, the team is pretty much set in stone. A clear standout 12 Imo.

The girls team will be difficult to choose, maybe not this camp, but the following one for Asia.

Might not qualify as an Aussie citizen???

Otherwise should easily crack an invite to the squad at least.

From the article

'Mojave currently possesses both New Zealand and US citizenship but, having grown up in Australia, he considers himself an Aussie and intends to don the green and gold.

"He is going to play for Australia," Leonard stated emphatically.

“He was pretty much raised in Australia but he just doesn't have that passport just yet. We’re working hard to try and get him his Australian passport so he can play for Australia but at the moment he doesn’t have it so he probably won’t be a part of the Australian junior team until we can obtain the Australian passport.”

It’s a decision that will come as a blow to Kiwi hoops, especially considering Leonard’s role as Basketball New Zealand's General Manager of High Performance.'

Really is time we expanded the pool. You have 150 usa players turn up to the first camp. Canada brings in 40.

We should at minimum be bringing in 5 players per position.

An Maybe attitude,! Lots of good players get overlooked and don't get a chance to prove themselves in tryouts! Talls win every time hopeless or not!

AN,
Our selection process is really poor and often good players get overlooked, or don't get a chance!
Coe players are automatic! They are not challenged.

Concerning non-selection of highest scoring VicM woman - she is a wonderful player, very quick - bottom age I think. She can look forward to representative duties next year I'd expect.

IMO punters can get overly focused on points scored by a guard, when many of the points scored reflect their capitalizing on outlet passes arising from a dominant rebounding outfit. This particular player is excellent in transition, but - for mine - shows an excessively ISO mindset when facing a settled defense. Quality opposition teams will pick up on this.

Red84 - We have to be speaking about different "highest scoring VicM woman" player as looking at her stats - 3rd in AST, 1st in scoring, 1st in 3 point shooting, 2 rebounding, 2 in FT and 1st in being fouled against. While only averaging 2 fouls a game.

I am really not sure where the down side here is.
