It’s A’ja Wilson’s Olympics and we just have the privilege to watch.
The first-time Olympian has been putting on a show in the group stages for Team USA, averaging 20.3 points and 10 rebounds per game.
In Sunday’s game against France, she scored 22 points and added seven rebounds to lead Team USA in a 93-82 victory.
The power forward was unguardable in the group stage, shooting with an astounding 65 percent field goal percentage.

The U.S. women’s basketball team is now on to the quarterfinals, having gone undefeated in group play in large part due to Wilson’s high-powered scoring. The Americans haven’t lost a game in group play since women’s basketball was first introduced to the Olympics in 1976.
Wilson and Team USA have yet to find out who they’ll play in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
