Team USA goes undefeated in Olympics 3×3 basketball on opening day


The first-ever Team USA 3×3 women’s basketball team won its first two games on Saturday morning, defeating No. 1 France, 17-10, and Mongolia, 21-9 to cap an unbeaten opening day.

Against France, Stefanie Dolson, who plays for the WNBA’s Chicago Sky, led the Americans with seven points, shooting 7-of-8 from the field and collecting six rebounds.

Kelsey Plum also added six points to the scoreboard, while Allisha Gray had three points and five rebounds.

Later, the Americans dominated Mongolia from the beginning as they sunk 11 of the first 12 points to cruise to an easy win well under the time limit.

Making history as the first from their country competing in a team event, Mongolia was no match for Team USA’s powerful defense and Allisha Gray’s sharpshooting.

Gray made four threes in the first 4:19 against Mongolia and went on to lead the way with 9 points.

Stefanie Dolson continued her earlier domination against Mongolia, combining for 12 points and 13 rebounds in Team USA’s Saturday wins.

The team will square off against Romania and Russia on Sunday.
