UVa's Imovbioh, Nigeria to skip U19 Worlds

We were really looking forward to seeing Virginia incoming freshman Sarah Imovbioh and her promising Nigerian team compete in the FIBA U19 World Championships set to begin Thursday in Chile. Unfortunately, Nigeria never showed up at the site - apparently due to a lack of finances - so the event with go on with 15 teams instead of 16.

The United States team, featuring former Princess Anne High star and soon-to-be Duke Blue Devil Elizabeth Williams, will open pool play Thursday against Japan. Click here for a preview.
