Led by University of Pittsburgh head coach and two-time Olympian Suzie McConnell-Serio, the USA squad was led by all-tournament team members Chennedy Carter, who averaged a team-best 16.1 ppg., and Tyasha Harris, who averaged 8.0 ppg. and a USA U19 record 5.7 apg. Eight of the U.S. team members averaged at least 7.3 ppg., with Ruthy Hebard finishing as the only other member of the team to average double-digit scoring with 11.0 ppg.

In its opening game, led by 19 points from Alecia Sutton, the USA outscored Mali 47-26 in the second half and ran away with a 95-58 win.

All 12 players scored, including a high of 14 points by Joyner Holmes, as the American women cut down China 91-51. Crystal Dangerfield and Harris scored a team-high 11 points apiece and Dangerfield dished out nine assists as the USA closed out the preliminary round with a 66-49 win over host Italy.

Meeting up with Puerto Rico in the round of 16, the islanders were no match for the USA in a 104-46 lopsided finish. Ruthy Hebard led with 21 points and nine boards and Harris dished out a USA U19 single-game record 10 assists.

Holding France to an icy 29.9 percent shooting from the field, the Americans knocked off France 78-51 in the medal quarterfinals. Four U.S. athletes scored in double digits, paced by Carter’s 18 points.

A 33-6 run that spanned the second and third quarters helped the USA clinch a 73-66 victory over Japan in the semifinals. Hebard led the charge with 24 points and 14 rebounds.

Facing also unbeaten Russia in a rematch of the 2015 FIBA U19 World Cup Final, Carter scored a USA U19 single-game record 31 points for the USA, Bella Alarie grabbed 12 rebounds and Harris had nine assists, but it was not enough to overcome Russia, which got 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists from forward Raisa Musina and 26 points and 18 rebounds from center and tournament MVP Maria Vadeeva in the USA's 86-82 loss.

The game featured 24 lead changes, and the USA’s largest lead was only eight points, while Russia’s largest lead was six points. Hebard gave the U.S. its final lead with 3:23 to play, 75-74. Down the stretch the Europeans shot 3-of-5 from the floor, forced two turnovers by the USA and hit 6-of-9 from the line as it outscored the U.S. 12-7 over the last 3:08 for the win.

Canada defeated Japan 67-60 for the bronze medal.

Carter and Harris were named to the all-tournament team along with Musina and Vadeeva, both of whom played in the 2015 U19 World Cup, and Canada’s Laeticia Amihere.
