Despite not featuring during Qualification and having expressed her discontent with the unfathomable court time handed to her at the Final Round in France two years ago, the team could welcome back the experienced Bjelica. The forward was benched for much of the last Final Round, but she brings a career of top-flight basketball in elite leagues and EuroLeague Women. A big character on and off the court, she first played at EuroBasket Women way back in 1999, when she wore Yugoslavia colours, despite only being 17-years-old. She can rebound, score inside, isn't afraid to jack up a three-point attempt and while she can blow hot and cold, she does have the know-how to be a big asset on a roster with a limited rotation on the international stage. Bjelica played with Hatay in Turkey last season and this tournament could be a swansong for her, more than 15 years after first playing at the event.
