Eight years after last wearing a Latvia national team vest at youth level, Kulite could have been forgiven for thinking that her time would never come with the senior side. However, she was brought in from the wilderness for qualifying last summer and took her chance with some strong cameo outings. Whether it is enough to retain her place remains to be seen, but she could be a real back-up option under the hoop. A double-double campaign with TTT Riga will do her cause no harm and she has been devastating around the basket with some brilliant finishing. Whether she can truly take that kind of shooting to the elite level in the Final Round remains to be seen, but her effectiveness on the offensive glass is another reason why she might just be handed a major tournament debut.
