BRA – Erika de Souza in Bassul’s mind

RIO DE JANEIRO (FIBA Americas Championship for Women) – Erika de Souza played for the Connecticut Sun this season in the WBNA, and now the technical commission of Team Brazil is working towards having everything ready for the center’s arrival this week. “She’s working out some technical issues in order to be able to get back to Brazil” head coach Paulo Bassul said.

Bassul is counting on resolving those issues as soon as possible, because there are some concerns about the player’s physical fitness. In just her second season in USA (in 2002 she played for the Los Angeles Sparks), de Souza played in 32 games, with personal records on annotations with 16 points in three games against Los Angeles, Mystics, and Liberty. At the same time, she grabbed 9 rebounds, blocked 5 shots, and played 28 minutes against San Antonio.

On Wednesday, Team Brazil received forward Iziane Castro, also active in the WNBA. “Castro played more, so she got here in good rhythm” the coach said.

Brazil began their training schedule for the FIBA Americas Championship for Women a month ago, and now is presenting a renovated team from the one that was present in the World Championship. “The team has been put to the test, and they’re responding well. We have a lot of young players, but their dealing well with the amount of training we’re giving them,” he said.

The Brazilian team has two exhibition game scheduled against male teams; one of those, at 18:30 (6:30) against the Pinheiros Junior Team, at the Olympic Center in Ibirapuerta.
