Former Cincinnati Bearcats standout Jordan Thompson starred in Team USA's sweep Tuesday of defending gold medalist China, and earned praise from NBC broadcasters Paul Sunderland and Kevin Barnett in doing so.
The 29-27, 25-22, 25-21 win in pool play left the Americans atop Pool B.
"(China) cannot stop Jordan Thompson. They have no answer for her," Barnett said during the broadcast. "And now I feel like they've gotten to where they're chasing her. And you're not gonna be successful when you're chasing somebody. You have to come up with a plan and execute that plan and then change the plan if it's not working.
