Team USA’s first scrimmage is tonight

Our Olympians face Brazil tonight in the first of two exhibitions this week.

From foes to friends, the USA team makes a quick transition.

Candace Parker dunked in practice Saturday. So did Sylvia Fowles.

Brazil is ready.

The Olympics schedule is demanding.

Angel McCoughtry is more comfortable on the world stage this year.

Diana Taurasi talks about the challenges the US faces from other teams.

Of course, Coach Geno Auriemma calls Sue Bird “the best point guard in the world.”

This team has a familiar feel for Auriemma.

Candace Parker and Sylvia Fowles go way back.

UConn assistant coach Chris Dailey is helping Team USA.

Something I missed: hoops great Teresa Edwards is the Chef de Mission for our team this Olympic Games.

Today’s game is 2:30 p.m. PDT/5:30 p.m. EDT on ESPN2. Go USA!!
