Underrated play, just now: Mohammed boxed out Griner on a US fast break, to prevent a potential lob.

Impressive first quarter by Nigeria. Be interesting to see how long they can keep up this intensity.

38-22 Nigeria with a couple minutes left in half.
Reeve has Bird playing, so she must be waving the white flag. Wink

They've kept it up for a half, at least. 6 points scored by the USA in the second quarter.

Nigeria's ranked 17th in the world. Win, lose or draw, that's got to go up after this game, yeah?

The announcer says the Storm is coming in the third quarter.

No storm in the 3rd - just a light drizzle that cuts Nigeria's lead to 7.

Granted Team USA didn't have their full squad today nor were they playing for anything , but this was a poor effort. Game should not have been this close nor should Nigeria had a 14 point halftime lead.

Samuelson and Atkins need to be in serious consideration for a spot on the Olympic team.

Nigeria's Kalu is some kind of point guard.

She gave Bird and Diggins-Smith the blues, all night.

I did not expect to be paying that close attention to this game, in the fourth quarter.

Otis Hughley Jr Is the coach for the Nigerian team. Apparently he’s an assistant for the Auburn women. I wonder if he’d make a decent WNBA head coach candidate.

I liked what he had to say at half time and he had his players play hard until the end of the game.
