Allen would have been a good fit with the way Australia is spreading the floor. Can't really comprehend the decision not to keep Allen, because she seems to me to be a good fit, but the Aussies loss was the Libs' gain. Even without her this team has a lot of 3 point shooters. The quickest way to pull off an upset over a better team is to hit the 3 ball time after time. This team can certainly do that.

This is the second time I have seen Leilani, and again it seems to me that her game has grown.

Yeah I really thought Allen would be here too.

Lucky we weren't playing a better team tonight.
That was stressful.

Opals win 84-66

George shows with 3 threes that she deserves some minutes off the bench. Its not like Burton is defending that much better at the moment Rolling Eyes

Serbia kicking Spain's butt early on.

It's all about Milovanovic.

This is a fun matchup. Both teams will give USA a decent run for their money.

Decent run for their money=keep it within 20-25 pts with 10-15 at the half

Serbia is only down 3 pts to Spain and their MVP player Dabovic only has 4 pts. That is not bad

Opals off to another bad start. Trailing at quarter time, Liz with 2 fouls, starters logging heavy minutes but not getting it done.
Offence horrible so far for us.

Glad to see Ebzery getting meaningful minutes and making the most of them

The Opals are 4 on 14 from 3. I like to see more inside out with Cambage to break that zone

Turkey leads 29-26 at the half.

I'm guessing (only by the timing of it) the shouting is Turkey's coach?

Cayla needs to stop switching those. Everyone is hedging and going back except for her. This is the 2nd layup she gave away

Yeah, defence has never been her strong point that's for sure.
I think Joyce was hoping to get some threes out of her like yesterday.

No sign of Jarry this game. I hope that's only precautionary.

I like her so far. She is a better offensive version of Jenni Screen

Haha, yes well she can score in multiple ways instead of 0 ways, so definitely an upgrade in that department.
It remains to be seen whether she can become the smart & tough defender that Jenni was though.

Yilmaz and Sanders are teaching the Opals a lesson. I dont know what FLB did on that last posession. Joyce put Erin back in ffs

Liz is fired up Laughing

Looked like she was determined to foul someone one that previous play but for some reason the refs put their whistles away (for the first time all game)

Opals got lucky with this win. They need to find their shooting groove like they had against the USA

I barely even recognise our team from the one that played at MSG a little over a week ago.
Joyce's up-tempo game grins to a complete halt at the first sign of resistance. USA didn't bother resisting because they can beat us at any pace they choose, but Turkey very nearly took us down tonight.

I'd be curious to see their actual offensive sets, since it seems like they didn't run any this game lol. Surely it's not four on perimeter pounding it down to Liz inside or bust...

What an end to the France-Belarus game.
Video replay to decide if the buzzer-beater was in time and .... it's good

France steals it 73-72.

Yeah their offense to break this zone was not really that good. The overload on 1 side worked a couple of times but when your outside shot is off your screwed. You need more options and drives to the basket.

This was precisely the previous Chicago offense (before EDD). Pound it in to Fowles at all costs.

Difference is that the Opals do have some great shooters on the perimeter. But if Penny Erin etc. are not hitting their open shots then you have a problem

Watching the China vs. Senegal match. Chen Nan is easily handling the posts of Senegal. Granted it's against Senegal, but I've always wondered why Nan only played one season in the WNBA(2009 - Chicago).
