The U16's of 2017 were streamed online so hopeful these will be too.

Don't believe so. Christyn has an older sister who accompanied her on some of her recruiting visits but I'm not aware of her having a sister that would be playing at U16.

Who's the biggest competition for the USA next year?
Ran over everyone else in 2018 under berube. Thought France would be competitive but wasn't the case.

Article on the possible evolution of the post game in the women's basketball. Lots of quotes from Amari DeBerry and Lauren Betts.

*

During Team USA's exhibition against The Force Basketball, a local AAU team, in preparation for the FIBA Americas U16 Championship from Sunday to June 22 in Puerto Aysen, Chile, Betts' farthest shot was a short-corner jumper from about 12 feet . Of course, she made it.

Nonetheless, the incoming sophomore at Grandview High School in Centennial didn't need to stretch the floor due to her height advantage in the exhibition. She spent nearly all her time in the post, catching lobs and scoring with ease. On defense, she accumulated more blocks than you could count on one hand.

I love Miles' game. A Bueckers-Miles backcourt would be endlessly entertaining.
I loves Miles also & while a Bueckers-Miles backcourt would be highly entertaining a Bueckers-Fudd backcourt might just be unbeatable. PS I am highly entertained by championships. You?

While Miles is not the shooter that Fudd is
(No one in HS is), I think she can do just about everything else equally as well.
