Who can defeat 3x3 World Champs China at FIBA 3x3 Women's Series Lignano Stop?

LIGNANO (Italy) - FIBA 3x3 World Cup 2019 winners China are the team to beat at the FIBA 3x3 Women's Series Lignano Stop in Italy on July 13-14.

Led by World Cup MVP JiaYin Jiang, China are making their return to the FIBA 3x3 Women's Series after finishing 4th in the first stop in Chengdu almost two months ago.  With Di Wu as the only player missing from the World Cup roster, can they dominate in Lignano as they did in Amsterdam?


With France, USA and Czech Republic missing in Lignano, is it Canada's time? A first place in Italy would boost Katherine Plouffe's team to second place in the Women's Series standings.

Hosts - and 5th in the standings - Italy will have both the crowd and the Rae Rae advantages this weekend, while Hungary will try to get their revenge after the loss they suffered against China in the final of the World Cup 3 weeks ago.
