Closing out preliminary round action against Puerto Rico on Aug. 25, the USA kept its winning streak alive after dismantling the islanders 106-54. University of Connecticut?s Rebecca Lobo scored a team high 14 points.

The USA needed all of University of Tennessee's Tiffany Woosley's tournament best 23 points against Cuba in the Aug. 27
semifinal. After spotting Cuba a 49-31 halftime lead, the United States turned up its offensive heat in the second half, outscoring Cuba 56-42, to earn the hard-fought 91-87 decision and the right to play for the gold medal.

Brazil also advanced to the gold medal contest with an unblemished 4-0 record and after 20 minutes of play the United States owned a slim 40-38 advantage over its South American rivals. However, just as the U.S. had turned the tide on Cuba in the second half of the semifinal game the day before, Brazil outscored the United States by 12 points in the second stanza and came out on top 80-70. Aycock scored 18 points for the U.S., Woosley added 12 and University of Alabama's Niesa Johnson pitched in 11 points.
Cuba defeated Puerto Rico for the bronze medal, while capturing the Americas Zone third qualifying spot for the 1993 FIBA Junior World Championship.
