The USA national team defeated the women’s basketball team 97-54 in their exhibition game Feb. 2.
The game started off with a layup by USA’s Skylar Diggins-Smith under the basket moments after the game opening tip.
Senior Jazmine Jones answered with a layup of her own. Senior Kylee Shook drained a wide open three-pointer moments later.
Redshirt senior Yacine Diop came off the bench to make an immediate impact with a layup then an assist to give the Cards a 14-13 lead. She then recorded a block after coming out of a timeout.
