EUROBASKET WOMEN 2015 QR
FYR of Macedonia head coach Goran Jovanovic is facing a dilemma over his two naturalised options ahead of the EuroBasket Women 2015 2nd Qualifying Round.
|Krisi Givens played an important role for the F.Y.R. of Macedonia national team|
Having utilised Krisi Givens last summer, he now also has the chance to make a change and call upon the services of Ashley Paris who has been playing both in the Turkish League and EuroCup Women for Mersin Büyüksehir.
The forward has been drafted into the training camp alongside Givens, who has finished her season playing with former EuroLeague Women side Municipal Targoviste in Romania.
She was the main weapon for the team last year during the three games in the 1st Qualifying Tournament, pouring in 16.7 points, pulling down eight rebounds and dishing up 4.7 assists per game.
However, Givens wasn't the top offensive contributor - that was prolific shooting guard Slavica Dimovska. Yet, it looks like Coach Jovanovic will be without his prize asset who was not named on the preliminary list of 24 players.
FYR of Macedonia will play Bulgaria, Portugal and Romania to warm-up for the business end of the summer when they clash with Belgium, Great Britain and Lithuania in Group B.
The full roster is as follows: Jelena Antic (Radivoj Korac), Angjela Davitkova (Badel 1862), Jovana Jolovik (Badel 1862), Dragana Jolovik (Badel 1862), Ivana Kmetovska (Vigor Skopje), Sandra Lazareska (Krosing), Andrijana Leskaroska (Badel 1862), Andzelika Mitrasinovik (Badel 1862), Edina Musa (unattached), Dragana Petrovska (Krosing), Ana Petrovska (Vardar Mladinec), Elena Radenkovic (Krosing), Sanja Radenkovic (Badel 1862), Nena Sekuloska (Badel 1862), Ana Tanturovska (unattached), Nena Trajchevska (Badel 1862), Vanesa Vasilevska (Klubski), Aleksandra Stojanovska (Badel 1862), Sofija Lazareska (Krosing), Iva Krstevska (Krosing), Ashley Paris (Mersin Buyuksehir), Krisi Givens (Municipal Targoviste), Marina Nedelcheva (Krosing), Jasmina Vujadinovic (Badel 1862).
