US Women Bounce Czechs, 94-46

Rebounding from that loss to Brazil, the US clinched a spot in the
quarterfinals by whipping a solid Czech Republic team. This is the squad that beat the US
in the competition two years ago, and Alana Beard did not forget it. Beard had 12 points on 5-9 shooting, 4 boards, 3 assists,
5 steals and just 1 turnover, her finest all-around game of the
tournament. Next up will be a Croatian team desperate to make it to the
next round. The US still has a chance to finish at the top of the group A
standings, but they must beat the Croatians to achieve this.
