How old must a player be

to play on the U-17 team? The local said Zia Cooke made the US National U-17 World Cup team (congrats BTW) but she IS 17. I thought the "U" stood for "under."



Someone can explain?


Any others from Ohio make the team? Perhaps one of the other World cup teams?

Cooke's good to go. It's 17 or younger as of a calendar date specified by FIBA. Not sure what the specific calendar date is for this case, but FIBA often uses January 1 of the year the event is being held.

Thanks, I was hoping someone would know. I did find the roster, there's another Ohio kid on it, not the one from McKinley but I've forgotten exactly where. So I think they'll all be Seniors. Heck of a class next year. Fairly dispersed by position too. At least one of them will probably be a Mickey D.

Judging by all the bellyaching in the Ms. Basketball thread a few months ago, the McKinley girl (Bell) likely turned 18 before the U-17 eligibility date.

An 18 year old Junior? Wasn't that the crime? Horrors!! lol I'm not sure which entertained more, the "accusations" or the defensive responses. Accused of being "old." I long for the good old days when that was all I was accused of.

Jordan Horston from Africentric. That's the other kid. Tournament in Minsk, Belarus. Landlocked between Germany and Russia. Gee, anything ever happen there?
