Connecticut teammates Bria Hartley (13.5 ppg.) and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (13.0 ppg.) led the team in scoring, while Crystal Braford averaged 10.8 ppg.

The USA dished out a record 34 assists to open play with a 120-32 victory over Mali on July 8. Hartley led six U.S. players in double figures with 17 points on 7-of-7 shooting, including 3-of-3 from deep, and Shoni Schimmel added 13 points and a game-high nine assists.

The next evening, the USA jumped ahead 8-0 in the first 80 seconds of the contest and was never threatened in a 101-61 win over Czech Republic. Mosqueda-Lewis scored a game-high 19 points, and Aaryn Ellenberg scored 10 of her 12 points in the first quarter to set the tone for the USA.

On July 10, the U.S. completed the preliminary round with a perfect record and advanced to the quarterfinals as the top seed from Group B after dispatching Brazil 105-75. Ellenberg scored all of her game-high 19 points in the first half, and Sims tied the U.S. event high with 10 assists

The Americans were tested but went on a 17-2 run in the third quarter to gain separation on the way to a 103-72 victory over Sweden in the quarterfinals on July 12. Sims scored a game-high 20 points, shooting 9-of-9 from the free throw line to set a U.S. record, and Hartley added 17 points.

Despite leading by as many as 17 points in the fourth, the USA found itself trailing Australia by one point in the final seconds before Bradford scored the game-winning basket on a put-back with 14 seconds left to give the USA a 79-78 victory in the semifinals on July 13. Sims scored a team-high 20 points, Hartley added 14 and Mosqueda-Lewis posted 12 points and 11 boards.

Behind outstanding defense, the USA never trailed and kept Russia at a distance for most of the second half on its way to claiming the gold medal with a 90-71 victory. Hartley led the charge, scoring 17 points. Bradford and Mosqueda-Lewis added 16 and 15 points, respectively.

After helping the USA earn the top placing in the 2011 World University Games as well, Sims became the first U.S. women’s basketball two-time gold medalist at the event.

Australia earned the bronze medal with a 99-58 win over Taiwan.
