Canada roared back from an 18-point deficit to top Serbia, 71-67.

Japan took care of Brazil, 82-66.

China thrashed Senegal, 101-64.

Headlines I don’t like:

Tamika Catchings is “at peace” with coming off the bench for Team USA.

Elena Delle Donne is also fine with her non-starting role.

In case you’ve missed it, the starters have been Diana Taurasi, Tina Charles, Sue Bird, Maya Moore and Brittney Griner. That’s four former UConn athletes, and Griner.

And Phoenix Mercury fans are wondering where this version of Taurasi and Griner has been all season long. Word has it they have been “saving themselves” for Rio during the WNBA season.

I watched Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike playing today in Los Angeles. Not Rio.

Olympic basketball has become too political for me this year.

Team USA news:

The secret to this U.S. team’s success? Never forget.

Twelve “must-see” plays.

The team has been overwhelming opponents with depth.

Player news:

Brittney Griner is finally at peace with herself.

Schedule:

Team USA plays next on Wednesday, as they’ll face Serbia.
