Gunta Basko-Melnbarde - EuroBasket Women 2015 Profile

While having seemingly called it a day after featuring at the Final Round in Poland four years ago, the veteran swingman is back on board to lend her unrivalled experience to many of the younger players on the roster. Basko-Melnbarde has almost 15 years of national team duties behind her at youth and senior level and despite now moving into the veteran phase of her career, it has not diluted her high-octane style - if her performances in the highly competitive French League are anything to go by. Latvia will re-inherit someone who has a brilliant basketball IQ, nice defence and can play multiple positions. She will be integral both on and off the floor due to her leadership qualities and while she is one of the most famous Latvian women's players, that won't stop her setting the tone when it comes to work rate at what will be her fifth EuroBasket Women Final Round appearance - exactly a decade after her first.
