Candice Wiggins' USA U19 World Championship Diary

July 19, 2005

Candice Wiggins, who will be a sophomore on the Cardinal women's basketball team this fall, is traveling with the USA U19 Team at the 2005 FIBA Women's U19 World Championship. A tri-captain, Wiggins is leading the squad in scoring with 20.0 points per game in the team's first three outings.


The U.S. team returns to action on Tuesday to face Puerto Rico and will finish off preliminary round play on Wednesday against South Korea. Making the tenth entry into the USA team diary is Stanford star Candice Wiggins.

Where do I start? I could write about what a beautiful place Tunisia is or about the very interesting people we've met so far. I could write about the life lessons I've learned, or about what it means to be American. I could write about what a huge impact my teammates and the USA staff has had on my life and how I'll never forget my time spent in Tunis. But I'm really boring so I'll just write about my day.

I woke up today at 10 a.m. for breakfast and we had practice scheduled today because no games were being played. The only thing I remember from today's practice is the new zone offense we put in called 'baseline' and I also learned that it actually is possible to break a press when you're going five against eight...
