U20 international youth basketball training roster for 2010

Alain Jardel will start the international youth basketball season for France U20 on 2 June 2010 with a 10-day training camp.

He has called up 22 players this year, of which three players coming from the NCAA.

 Myriam Igoufe © lamarcardinals.comMyriam Igoufe is the least known of the NCAA players due to the fact that she has not played a single match for Lamar University in two years.

In her first year, she missed the start of the season due to NCAA eligibility queries. On the week she was cleared to play, she suffered a knee injury which ended her season.

Igoufe worked hard to get back to fitness and played for France U19 during the World Championships last year. On returning to America, she suffered a pre-season injury that kept her out for the season.

The rest of the players called up are either playing for clubs in the LFB, NF1 and NF2.

Avenir de Rennes which is a club known for youth development has four players in the list.

Normally after the first training camp the number of players to continue the preparation will be reduced.

The second training camp will start on 18 June and end with a four-national international youth basketball tournament in Bourg-en-Bresse.

France will play Bulgaria, Germany and Poland.

France will finish their preparations in Spain and Italy with matches against The Netherlands, Italy, Russia, Spain and Turkey before heading for Latvia for the European Championships.
