EuroBasket Women 2011
French roster

Pierre Vincent released the names of the 12 players for Eurobasket Women 2011 before the final game during the Tournoi International d'Ain.

It was announced that 2009 EuroBasket gold medal winner Pauline Krawczyk would join Anaël Lardy and Paoline Salagnac on the reserve list.

However the group France adventure for this summer is definitely over for Ana Cata-Chitiga.

Vincent explained that with the short time remaining to prepare for the European Championship that it was necessary to quickly get the players into competition mode so that each player could find their place within the team before group dynamics would take over.

He is happy with the way things are going so far and believes they are heading in the right direction. Yet he is aware they still have a lot of work to do in order to get things right.

The 12 players selected to represent France at EuroBasket Women 2011 in Poland are:
