Alanna is not playing in World University Games

The Australian Opals were [are] in two international tournaments this summer: FIBA Asia Cup and World University Games (WUG).

Early this summer, Alanna was on the WUG roster and not on the Asia Cup roster. Later, just before Asia Cup began, Alanna was added to the roster to replace an injured player.

The World University Games have just begun and Alanna is not on the Australian team.

Do we know why?

I assume it's because Basketball Australia spreads the opportunities. No Emerging Opal (their U23 players) is on both rosters.
