Question of the Day
All the moves seemed to pay off as the U.S. went on to a 99-72 victory.
ROOKIE HAZING: Moore was a sponge all weekend long soaking up everything she could from the experience. She was the definite fan favorite, getting a huge ovation from the crowd when she entered the game for the first time with 1:58 left in the first quarter. Moore drew a louder cheer when she had an eye-popping move in the second half.
“Every day in practice she proves she belongs on the team,” Auriemma said. “The great thing about our team is that you can’t tell who the college kid is. If you line up all of our players and say pick the one in college, you can never figure it out. She blends right in, she plays like them, she handles herself like them.”
Still even with her strong showing in the game, Taurasi was quick to remind the college star afterward about the airball she shot.
The two will go head-to-head on Wednesday for an ESPY as both were nominated as the best female athlete.
AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE: After beating the WNBA All-Stars on Saturday the U.S. had a scrimmage against rival Australia on Sunday morning. The Aussies had come to Connecticut for the weekend to train as well since a few of their key players were in the WNBA and couldn’t travel home to get ready for the Worlds.
With center Sylvia Fowles gone to New York for a WNBA game, the U.S. team was lacking in the frontcourt against the much taller Aussies, who had a 6-foot-8 post player.
Auriemma joked with Australia coach Carrie Graf before the game that there would be a limit to the number of posts she could play at any one time.
It was evident that the U.S. was using the scrimmage as a chance to further evaluate talent, limiting the minutes that Bird, Taurasi and a few other key players were on the court. He didn’t call timeouts when the Australians started pulling away in the second half en route to their 87-72 victory.
“This was invaluable to us having a chance to see what people can do,” he said. “If I was looking to win it people would have played different amounts.”
