Coach Nerips gave the forward her first chance with the senior national team during qualification and she was handed a healthy 17 minutes-per-game, playing in all eight encounters. She repaid the faith almost instantly with 23 points across the first two games, before going on to retain a vital role throughout the campaign. That should be enough to keep her place for this year, ensuring a major tournament debut in France. The small forward played regularly for Latvia at youth level and spent last season in the Dutch League, having also played in the second tier of Spanish basketball. She can shoot the three consistently and is a proficient rebounder but her biggest strength is that she keeps things simple on the court. She very rarely spills the ball and sticks to defensive assignments. It's easy to see why she may continue to carve out a role coming off the bench.
