The veteran is in a race against time to be healthy for action in France, since she sustained a broken nose a couple of months ago and required surgery. A fierce competitor, Alyoshkina is very much a defensive anchor for the national team since she can match-up with dangerous opponents under the basket due to her size coupled with experience. She will be a tower of strength on the boards and especially offensively where her effective positioning should harvest either priceless put-back scores, or important second chance possessions. From time to time, she will come alive in a big way in terms of points production, as 22 points in qualifying against Hungary would testify, but it's very much her defensive capabilities which make her such a key cog in the Ukrainian wheel.
