The 32-year-old is an impressive performer and the focal point in the paint for Latvia. Her role this year will be even more important than usual due to a lack of depth under the basket and she may have to pick the team up at times and carry them on her shoulders. She is powerful, has decent athleticism and works hard for the team which almost always results in some useful numbers. She will be the primary rebounder and amongst the top scorers which was the case during qualification and in previous major tournaments. She is always willing to drop a shot from the perimeter if open and will exploit opportunities from downtown if they arise. She has played for a host of top European clubs and as well as experience which will be vital both on and off the court, she is a great finisher at the hoop and so the message will be to get the ball into her hands down low at every opportunity.
