FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup 2018

This years basketball World Cup is going to be 18th in a row. The tournament will be hosted by team Spain and city of Tenerife from 22.09 until 30.09. This tournament will see the World Cup debut of Belgium, Latvia, and Puerto Rico.
16 teams are qualified for this tournament and sorted into 4 groups, each team in a group will play each other once. The teams placed second and third from each group will advance to the quarterfinal qualifications, where the winners of the qualification round will then progress to the quarterfinals, losers will be eliminated. The second phase is a knockout phase, where the winner will be determined.
The United States is the two-time defending champions and without any doubt number one candidate for another trophy.

Alongside team United States, other candidates for winning tournament are host Spain, Australia and France. But let's start with reigning champions, team USA.
Winners of back-to-back World Cup titles and four of the past five FIBA World Cups, the USA owns a record nine gold medals, one silver medal and two bronze medals in FIBA World Cup play. In the most recent World Cup, the U.S. took the gold medal, while Spain captured silver and Australia won bronze. The USA will compete in preliminary round Group D and will play Senegal on Sept. 22, China on Sept. 23 and Latvia on Sept. 25.
The final 12-member 2018 USA World Cup Team yet to be announced but, nevertheless they will have a best possible team there is.

Team Australia will try to beat their past result from World Cup held in Turkey. That time they were 3rd after losing from the USA in the semi-final.
The Liz Cambage, WNBA star, is team best player and team leader. Alongside Liz, also there are some great players from WNBA such as Leilani Mitchell, Sami Whitcomb, Cayla George, Steph Talbot and Rebecca Allen. This year we can expect good games from team Australia and good finish place at the end of the tournament.

The host Spain is one of the most successful basketball teams in the world, being the current European champions and the World and Olympic runners-up. They will try to use home court advantage and try to beat team USA in the battle for a gold medal.
Alba Torrens, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard has been a machine in Europe, winning both the FIBA Europe Women’s Player of the Year Award and EuroLeague Finals MVP in 2011 and 2014. She’s been tough to guard in Rio as well, dropping 32 points on China and averaging 16.1 points per game, good for sixth in the tournament. She’s not just a scorer, however, pulling down nearly six rebounds a game, and dishing out three assists a night as well.
We can expect great support from home fans and maybe a gold medal, how knows!?

France are looking to end what has been a barren run at the tournament, having finished 3rd at the inaugural event in 1953 and not appearing on the podium in the subsequent 65 years. They will tip-off against Korea in the Group phase and then face Greece and Canada.
