USA U23 Women Beat Canada 107-61 At Four Nations

The USA Basketball Women’s U23 team rolled over Canada 107-61 at the 2017 Four Nations Tournament Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

 

Arike Ogunbowale (Notre Dame) had 17 points with 4 steals, Brittany McPhee (Stanford) added 15 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting from the field, while Sabrina Ionescu (Oregon) chipped in 10 points in the victory.

 

The Americans’ tight defense forced a whopping 35 Canadian turnovers which led to many fast break baskets.

 

The US also was very efficient on offense, shooting 60 percent from the field and dishing out 21 assists on their 42 made buckets.

 

“We tried to look to get the ball out in transition, but at the same time, tried to execute in the half court,” USA head coach Jeff Walz told usab.com. “When we didn’t score in transition, we really did a nice job making the extra pass, making them defend us and then, we just shared the ball so well.”

 

Ogunbowale started off fast, scoring 9 points in the first quarter to propel USA to a 28-13 lead after one.

 

The Americans just keep pouring it on, leading 47-29 at the half and 72-46 at the end of the third quarter.

 

“In the last game, we took too many dribbles. Coach said we needed to get it out of our hands, so we tried to push it this game,” said. “We all came in the game with a purpose, and we kept attacking.”

 

USA (2-0) will next face host Japan (1-1) on Aug. 15 for the Four Nations Tournament championship.
