Unfortunately, USA point guards Nicole Anderson and Tammy Story both suffered minor injuries during the course of the tournament and were forced to sit out two games each - both of the United States' losses.

The U.S. opened competition edging out the Republic of China's White team 57-54 behind UCLA guard Rehema Stephens' 15 points and nine points from Trisha Stafford.

The U.S. next defeated Yugoslavia 98-88 with the help of Stephens and University of Washington guard Laura Moore who tallied 18 and 15 points, respectively.

The U.S. suffered its first defeat in a 98-88 loss to Japan on the third day of competition, despite a team-high 25 point performance by Stephens and 15 points apiece from Moore and 6'2' Judy Shannon.

After taking a day off, the USA regrouped and, on Independence Day, knocked off Republic of China - Blue 85-78. Stephens again put in a stellar performance, notching 28 points for the USA, while Val Whiting added 12 points.

The USA, no match for Canada without Anderson and Story, trailed the Canadians at the final buzzer 60-45. 6'0' Staci Wallenborn and Stephens recorded 12 and 10 points for the U.S., respectively.

In their final preliminary game, the U.S. was slated to face previously unbeaten, and eventual gold medalist South Korea. With the aid of Wallenborn's 19 points and 10 from Whiting, the USA served the South Korean squad its only defeat of the tournament by a narrow 81-80 margin.

Advancing to the bronze medal game, the U.S. found themselves up against Canada, a team that had defeated the Americans by 15 points just two days before.

Needing a win in order to bring home a medal, the U.S. trailed 35-34 at the midway mark, but jumped ahead in the second half and cruised to the eventual 71-57 victory and the bronze medal. Stephens and Anderson paced the U.S. squad with 16 points apiece, while Shannon added 14 points in the victory.

In the championship game, South Korea defeated Japan for the Jones Cup gold medal.

For their efforts, Stephens and Whiting were named to the 1991 Jones Cup All-Tournament Team.
