The coach Lucas Mondelo made public this Wednesday that Laura Quevedo Y Nogaye Lo are the last discards for the Eurobasket which will be played between June 17 and 27 in Valencia but also that they will rejoin the group at the end of the tournament to prepare for the Olympic Games.
The special circumstances caused by COVID establish that each Selection can prepare until the day before the start of the competition with 12 + 2 players. Thus, next Wednesday, Lucas Mondelo will have to inform FIBA of the final roster.
In the words of the coach “Nogaye It and Laura Quevedo They are players with a foot and a half in the National Team, but for different reasons they are not among the 12 finals ”. And he added that “they will not be in the EuroBasket, but they will continue with the programming and preparation work for the Olympic Games and in case of any setback they can become part of the definitive squad for Tokyo ”. Lucas Mondelo also wanted to thank and acknowledge “the great professionalism of both and the great work they have done in these weeks.”
Without them already, the National Team, which is once again concentrated in Valencia, disputes its last preparation tournament in this city since Thursday, where it will face Turkey, tonight, at La Fonteta at 8:30 p.m., and the Saturday to Italy, at the same time. Both games will be broadcast live on Teledeporte.
