Congrats to the USA Women's Basketball Team winning the Gold Medal.

The US averaged victories of 37+ points per game. Playing in the championship game against the talented Opals of Australia, the US was able to hold Australia under 25% shooting from the field.

This is no easy task when you seeing how talented Australia is at every position. I had the opportunity to compete against many of the Aussies, from the WNBA MVP Lauren Jackson to the feisty Kristi Harrower. Although my patriotism is 100% with the US I did cheer for Penny Taylor to have a great game as she is a former teammate and friend of mine from the Cleveland Rockers. I miss our sushi luncheons.

This group put together posed the greatest challenge to the US but could not find a rhythm throughout the game because of our defensive pressure. We controlled the game from the opening tip despite foul trouble to key players and brought home the Gold once again.

As a coach, a US citizen, and a parent I want to thank our Olympians for representing us well on both ends of the court, on the sidelines, and back home in the US.
