She is taking too many shots IMO. Get others involved and then look for your offense.

She's been doing it all Olympics. I think her style has always been more shoot first, but it's usually more so than she has been. I wonder if Geno wants her going to the basket and looking for her shot?

Does CT still own Torrens' rights?

She isn't playing very well, how anyone thinks she is a top PG is beyond me. Trying to watch her weave her way between a sea of red, then missing a bad layup is painful.

Nice Maya and Lindsay.

Seemed like there were some jitters from just about everyone, but they've calmed down.

I want Catch in the game in the second half Geno. In fact, I want Sue, Diana, and Catch in at the same time. Laughing

So far, Moore is the MVP of this game. Taurasi will probably be the MVP of the tournament with her record number of threes.

Team finally got their shit together, but then this seems to be the way they play, sloppy first quarter, but by mid second quarter they pull it together.

Lindsay isn't really moving the ball. She drives and passes or drives and shoots.

I would imagine that's what Geno wants her to do.

The stats would disagree. She also has not been getting calls. Twice she has been mauled when she went for a layup and not gotten the call.

Watching her control an offense makes it clear why she is still considered one of the best, and is inarguably one of the best of all time.

Right, as I said a few times, Lindsay is obviously doing what Geno wants her to do when she's in the game, or she wouldn't be in the game. Laughing

They said that Geno's game plan was to try and get the Spanish bigs in foul trouble. One of the best ways to do that is to drive it down their throat. It looks to me as she is executing the gameplan perfectly.

She's home nursing her attitude, you know, the reason she didn't make the team?

They were saying MAYA leads the team in rebounding. Is that true?

Right. Sue and Lindsay are different kinds of point guards. Sue's going to run the offense. She's great at spacing and making the right pass and moving the ball. That's great for a starting lineup like this team where the offensive talent is so great that spreading the ball is what is needed.

Lindsay comes in, and she aggressively goes to the basket to get the second unit going. That's great for the second unit, which actually has a group of players that seem to play well in chaos.

Both are valid styles of running a team guys. Laughing

edit: Griner was not out of bounds, and that was clearly a charge.
