When are the remaining players scheduled to arrive in Paris?

I'm so happy to see Sims in that group and having fun. What an honor it is for all of these players to be part of USA basketball. It makes you proud of every darn one of them representing the US on foreign soil.

GO TEAM USA!!

There is a quote saying a 'few' more players joining tomorrow but no identification of which ones. I could see BG and/or EDD if they are restricted from flying at the moment being added at the very last minute. More likely for BG than EDD because with Sylvia out the USA team doesn't have as much quality cover for her as for EDD.

I was expecting to see something like (paraphrasing Peter Cook's great description of the "judging exams" in his coal miner sketch) "My god, what a rigorous practice!" I guess Geno is taking it easy on them; so far.

Does anyone know when the games will be played? What about tv coverage, will they be televised?

I was looking around and I cannot find any indication the Paris games will be telecast at all. They are I think all scheduled around 11 AM - the USA basketball site has the dates and times.
The Fiba ones should at least be available from FibaTV

I liked this player quote best:

"We all had a hard time concentrating today, wondering what FairView would write for his 1,000th Boneyard post. Hopefully he'll share his wonderfully witty 1K soon so we can get back to focusing on basketball."

I apologize, ladies. If I knew I was affecting your performance, I'd have posted something sooner. Now get back to thinking about the game, the game, the game.

Congrats on your 1K FairView!

Minor correction. October 1 is the date of the play-in game for the teams that go 1-2 or 2-1. The true round of 16 begins on Oct. 3. The USA should be off on Oct. 1 unless China, Serbia, or Angola can pull off an upset for the ages.

Also, if the USA keeps winning, I'm pretty sure all their games are at approx. 2:30 PM EDT. I posted a thread, but it didn't get pinned.

Prediction: Stef makes the squad in the new position of Team Photographer and Social Director.

The Big Girl with purple hair is leading the world's best around Europe. I need to stop and think if I like this. :)

Experienced international travelers avoid the 2-finger (peace sign?) gesture Skylar is making in this photo (and other recent Paris photos). Another reason she needs to play internationally...

Hey Milford,
Your thread did get pinned, although sadly the valiant efforts of those who kept bumping, bimping and badda binging it were deleted.

Thank you! My error. I didn't look up top. Since folks were asking, I assumed it had drifted down the page.
