On its first day of competition, the USA opened with a 22-5 win over Dominican Republic and then cruised past Jordan 22-4 in its second contest.

In the first game, Hebard scored three points in an opening 4-1 run, and the USA continued to pull away. Holding a 12-5 advantage, the U.S. scored 10-straight points to close out the game, which was finished off by a Bueckers 2-pointer. Collier and Hebard led the way with seven points apiece, Bueckers scored five points on 2-of-4 from 2-point and Young, playing in her first USA Basketball game, added three points.

Against Jordan, Hebard scored the game’s first two points, and the Americans never trailed. After a Jordan bucket, the U.S. combined for 15 unanswered points to take an insurmountable 17-1 advantage. Up 20-4, Bueckers again netted a 2-pointer to end the game. Bueckers and Young tied as the team’s top scorers with six points, while Collier and Hebard added five points apiece.

In its third and final preliminary round game, the USA completely shut down Russia for a 22-3 victory. Young scored five of the USA's first seven points, and the U.S. sprinted to a 7-0 lead. Russia got on the scoreboard at 7-1, but the USA reeled off eight points to take charge 15-1. Up 20-3, Bueckers connected from behind the arc for 2-points to finish off the game. Young finished with a game-best nine points, and Collier added six points.

The USA had its gold medal hopes dashed after falling in overtime to Brazil 14-12 in quarterfinal play. Young, who was perfect in her first six attempts, finished with a game-high nine points. The U.S. opened with a 7-1 run and led 10-3 behind six points from Young. From there, however, the USA’s shooting went cold and Brazil caught fire with eight straight points to move ahead 11-10. Young knotted the score 11-11 and moved the USA ahead 12-11 with a free throw, but Brazil tied it up before time expired to send the game into overtime. After two missed baskets by the U.S. and one from the South Americans, Brazil connected on a 2-pointer to end the game.
