Ireland U20 women’s head coach Martin Conroy has announced his final roster of 12 players who will continue on to represent Ireland at this year’s FIBA U20 Women’s European Championship Division B in Kosovo.
Speaking about the announcement, he stated: "Making this selection was one of the toughest decisions I've had to make as a basketball coach. We started with an extremely talented panel and they made it really difficult for the coaches to select the final 12. This team brings everything that we need to go out and win games in Kosovo this coming summer - and we are excited!"The squad will tip off their European campaign from August 3-11th in Kosovo.
