So glad Kelsey Griffin made the team. Hope the team qualifies, and Kelsey has the chance to be an Olympian(hopefully with a medal as well!)

Yeah, I like it too. She's done a lot for the Opals only to be bumped aside once everyone is available so this is cool. I look forward to seeing her in the 3x3 format - I think it will suit her.

I think one of those 4 will be cut before the actual qualifiers, because you are normally only allowed 4 players on a 3x3 team.

they wont all go, only 5 permitted on a team, though they may take a reserve incase of injury if thats permitted?

Kelsey Griffin, hmmm whilst shes a great player, shes also riddled with injuries, 3x3 is tough going on your body, especially one thats that broken down.

Nicholson wont get a look in for the Opals Im guessing as Ohea will be ready by then. Brondello didnt use her anyway, but Nicolson, Garrick AND Cole on one 3x3 team, cant see many plays other than driving to the basket, Kunek may come back into that as a bigger player too, so be interesting to see just who ends up actually making the team, think Cole is the only guaranteed spot.

I'm tipping that Kunek if fit will be selected again for sure. She has been outstanding in the 3x3 format. Sandy should take her instead of Talbot.

I think Kunek stated that Sandy told her "there are 3 automatic starters in the 3 spot before her"

Allen / Ohea / Kunek / Talbot / Blicavs
