Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Holy what the heck, Batman! They only won by 60!

But it ain't all about the scoring. Argentina was forced into 28 turnovers (13 steals) and only shot 18.5%.
"Our game plan against Argentina was to keep the ball out of the middle of the floor, to trap on ball screens and we wanted to contain penetration," said Barbara Nelson, USA and Wingate University head coach. "Argentina has some very good guards that I thought we contained very well. We used our size to our advantage on defense tonight. Getting stops was key for us, and we played great defense."
