Alba Torrens and Tamara Abalde, who just played against Kia the other day, both had virus tests come back positive. Torrens would be a big miss for Spain, but if the results are confirmed and they cannot play, it is much better for this to happen now then after rosters can no longer be changed.

Torrens, I think, is Spains tallest player, at 6'3". That will hurt, especially if they cant replace her. Carrera is young, 19, and will need to be very good.
Ndour is their tallest player. They also had Gil on their original roster and she is more of a traditional post than Torrens even though they are around the same height. Torrens and Abalde were replaced by Laura Quevedo, who is a true SF, and Paula Ginzo, who is a PF.

Belgium loses to Bosnia and Herzegovina 70-55. JJ had alot to do with the win (Rebounds and great passes out of the post to the 3 pt snipers) but she also was pretty careless with the ball. Meessemen was good but Allemond was just ok.

Gabby had 8 point and 7 rebounds in 21 minutes in France's 105-63 win over Croatia:

Starting point guard Olivia Epoupa was injured two minutes into the game so Gabby could be asked to do more playmaking. The other natural point guard on the roster is Alix Duchet who is at best a competent backup.

5 points in 21 minutes for Gabby in France's 71-51 win over the Czech Republic.

The coach adopted an interesting strategy without a starting point guard and had Gabby and the other two best playmakers start together and just ran point guard by committee.
