After a sluggish start, the 2012 USA Basketball Women's National Team (3-0) erased an 11-point deficit and rode a 21-0 run to an eventual 88-63 win over Great Britain in an exhibition contest on Wednesday night in Manchester, England.
Former Lady Vols Tamika Catchings and Candace Parker were once again in the starting lineup for the USA. In 19 minutes of action, Parker knocked down three of six shots from the field and nailed both of her free throw attempts to finish with eight points in a very balanced scoring attack. She added four rebounds and three steals to the cause as well.
Catchings, meanwhile, finished with six points and six boards for the American side in 27 minutes on the hardwood. Displaying her typical versatility and tenacity, she also kicked in five assists and four steals for Team USA.
The USA Women's National Team will next travel to Istanbul, Turkey, where it will take part in its final exhibition contests prior to the Olympic Games. The Americans will play Croatia on Saturday and Turkey on Sunday.
