Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Saturday, July 04, 2009

The US team stands at 3-0 after defeating Serbia 84-50.
"I think we were prepared for a close game, and at the same time, we knew that if we rebounded and played defense, we could pretty much dominate the game," said USA and Arizona State University head coach Charli Turner Thorne. "I am really proud of this team for their composure and playing through rough play. We did anticipate Serbia would be very aggressive after scouting them, and the crowd was certainly in their favor, but it was fun. This is what we prepared for - a big arena, big crowd and having to pull together and find a way to get things done. It was another great team win."

Time for round two -- no news if Maya Moore (sore knee) will play.
