Team USA advances to quarterfinals

The 2014 USA Basketball Women's National team completed its sweep of the FIBA World Championship group round yesterday with a huge win over Angola 119-44.

Team USA rookies (Nneka, Odyssey Sims and Breanna Stewart) came off the bench for lots of playing time, and Nneka took full advantage of the opportunity. She led all scorers with 18 points on seven of eight field goals and grabbed the most rebounds (10).
