    USA beat South Korea 89-67 in game #2 (which I didn't watch). It looks like neither Joens nor Clark had a spectacular game, but most of the USA offense was generated in the frontcourt. Of the five players with efficiencies of at least 10, Bueckers was the only backcourt player.

    The semi (vs Belgium) is actually at a watchable time: 7:30 AM Saturday morning. Looks like it should be streaming on ESPN+, but I believe it'll continue to be on youtube and facebook as well.

    Australia and Spain are playing in the other semi (5 AM). The final is 7:30 AM Sunday.

    Seems like Joens is having some shooting struggles...she is right around 20-25% overall for the tourney thus far. I'm wondering if is due to the further out 3-point line? She is rebounding well and doesn't seem to be having any turnover issues.

    Odd box score. USA only shot 4 threes and Belgium attempted 26. Haven't watched any of the games, is that USA's normal game?

    When you've got horses like Howard and Boston down low, why shoot 3's?

    Was kinda thinking that but didn't know how the other games were going with maybe some of the opponent team having bigs.

    USA wins gold with 74-70 OT win over Australia.

    Ashley played 3:42 with 0 points, 1 rebound and 1 steal.

    Caitlin Clark played 7:29 with 3 points on 3 of 4 free throws.

    I watched the highlights on You Tube; USA was fortunate to force OT, as Australia had the lead and the ball as regulation time ran down. An Australian elbow met the face of a pressing US player - ref initially called the foul on USA but reversed it after going to the monitor...

    While Ashley didn't have a particularly impressive tournament, she did play in every game and won a second gold medal representing the USA; let's hope she can use the international experience to improve her college game!!!

    Man, how good are some of these high school kids that play while college Div I experienced players on the squad are deep bench subs. Pretty impressive.

    Amen. Bueckers as good as advertised, and South Carolina is getting an absolute warrior in Aliyah Boston.

    Great experience for Joens. CBF was there for the final two games. Wonder if he made any inroads into getting Clark? I was pretty impressed with some of the foreign players too, maybe he could grap another player from Australia.
