The girls from American Samoa will be able to showcase their talent in the upcoming FIBA Oceania Youth Tournament for Women in Auckland, New Zealand. The team will be made of the best high-school players of the island but that might not be enough to compete for a medal.

Schedule:
American Samoa - Fiji on Oct 15
American Samoa - New Caledonia on Oct 16
American Samoa - New Zealand on Oct 17
Playoffs on Oct 19-21

Roster:
Gael Vai
Hamina Mauga
Jessica Fuimaono
Kasina Fonua
Le'Aniva Fanene
Mona Leug
Nella To'O
Seini Mauga
Sy Nua
Tabitha Kalapu
Varuna Faasavalu
Yvonne Tagaleo'O

Preview:
Just like the men team, the AmSam girls would be made of the best players of the high-school league. Thanks to this league, the coaches were able to scout and choose the best youngsters available. But just like the men again, the Girls might lack experience on the Oceania stage. American Samoa seems unable to beat Australia, New Zealand and maybe also Fiji. The team should end somewhere between the 4th and the 8th spot in the Final Standings.
Prevision: 6th

You can follow this tournament on our special "FIBA Youth Tournament 2006" page, we will post a recap of the team's games during this event in the days following the Gold medal. Stay tuned.
