USA Basketball easily defeats China

They only had one practice under their belts, last night. But by the second quarter in tonight’s exhibition against China’s national team, our Olympic squad was flowing together extremely well. They beat China 100-62.

This marks the beginning of the USA team’s quest for a fifth consecutive gold medal.

Players say representing their country is worth everything.

Tomorrow morning the USA team scrimmages against the Japan National Team. Tomorrow evening, the Sparks and the Storm play a pre-season game. Which means that Candace Parker and Sue Bird will have long days.
