Three more days left till the beginning of the U21 Championship for Women in Russia. Today Eurobasket introduces players, the people who will struggle in the court.

The USA will be represented by the players who participate mostly in NCAA tournaments. The USA will look to defend its world title in U21 age group, open to athletes 21-years-old or younger. As the team celebrated the win last time we decided to give you the whole roster of the team. The final 12-member team includes: Jolene Anderson, DeWanna Bonner (193-G-87), Essence Carson, Laura Harper, Ashley Houts (168-G), Crystal Langhorne, Marscilla Packer (175-G), Kia Vaughn, Abby Waner, Candice Wiggins (180-G-87), Paris and Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton. The average height of the team is 6'0 (182 cm).

The silver medals' team in the last Championship Brazil will send 4 players with the name Santos. Fluminense duo Clarissa and Ivana will represent Brazil's yellow-and-green jersey for the first time in an international tournament.

France that was third last time will defend their best European title. The team has already lost two friendly games before the tournament against USA. In the first game France was led by Sandrine Gruda (192-F/C-87) who hit 13 points for France. In the second game Sylvie Gruz top-scored for the team with 14 points.

Russian National team is made up by the players mostly from the National Championship. Three players however participated in Europe last season, but will greatly fit the team. Anastasia Anderson (174-G-86) plays for Romanian Biandra Targoviste, Irina Ryukhina (175-G-86) defends Lotos Gdynia and Elena Reshetko (184-C-86) is in Catz Lappeenranta that is in Finland.
