USA U19 Women Rout China 91-51 At World Cup

The USA Basketball Women’s U19 team rolled over China 91-51 in their 2017 U19 World Cup opener in Friuli, Italy.

 

Joyner Holmes (Texas) had 14 points with 9 rebounds, ESPN No. 6 ranked high school senior Chennedy Carter (Texas A&M) scored 13, while Crystal Dangerfield (UConn) and Ruthy Hebard (Oregon) added 11 points each in the win.

 

“Defensively, we tried to stay in place, limit penetration and really focus on defending their offense,” USA head coach Suzie McConnell-Serio told usab.com. “Our players came out with a focus and energy defensively, and we were really impressed with the way we defended dribble penetration, contesting shots.”

 

“The first half, we limited them to 15 points,” added McConnell-Serio. “I think our defense created a lot of opportunities in transition and other scoring opportunities.”

 

Indeed the USA’s defense was the story of the contest as the Americans limited the Chinese to a lowly 30 percent shooting for the game and held China to only five points total in the second quarter.

 

The game was decided by halftime as the US squad took a commanding 48-15 lead at the break.

 

“We got out to that great start and got a good lead in the beginning,” said Chennedy Carter.

 

Next up for the Americans is a July 25 matchup against Italy.
