Wednesday's national team updates

Elizabeth Williams
Elizabeth Williams went 7-for-7 from the field during a 16-point, 8-rebound performance during the United States' 133-71 flogging of Japan in the World U17 Championships in France. Why such a large spread? The Americans' 66-27 rebounding advantage may have had something to do with it. The U.S. concluded group play with a 5-0 mark and will and face Spain (2-3) in Friday's quarterfinals.
Prior to Wednesday's game, Williams chatted briefly with about the U.S. team. As interviews go, this one is about as shallow as the lyrics to Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive." But we'll pass it along just the same.

European U20 B Championships

Talk about a one-woman team. Macedonia's Jelena Antic (Liberty) scored 23 of her team's 41 points in a 72-41 loss to Hungary that dropped the host squad to 0-4. Antic continues to lead all players with 25 ppg and 12 rpg. Macedonia will face Belgium in a 9th-place game on Thursday. Friday's quarterfinals: Great Britain (featuring ODU's Mairi Buchan and Becca Allison) vs. Israel; Czech Republic vs. Greece; Slovak Republic vs. Hungary and Portugal vs. Belgium.

Central American and Caribbean Championships

The Virgin Islands pummeled St. Vincent and the Grenadines 80-44 to advance to the medal round. Victoria Hamilton (Radford) chipped in 6 points for the winners. Stacy Griffith (UDC, ex-VCU), is also representing the Virgin Islands.
