The 2011 U.S. Women’s 3x3 U18 World Cup Team left quite an impression, after barely losing its semifinal game with just two players on the court. Taya Reimer (left) already had been sidelined by an ankle injury, and just a few minutes into the semifinal versus Italy, Rebecca Greenwell (right) suffered a knee injury. Kaela Davis and Linnae Harper finished out the game playing two-against-three, and lost by just two points, 21-19. FIBA recognized the squad as “honorary” bronze medalists.
