Coach Dori Oldaker (Mt. Lebanon H.S., Pa.),

On today’s games:

I thought we played really well in the first game; we played strong, we played together. It was nice to see our team play so well. I thought the second game we didn’t play as strong, maybe a little bit tired. But we’ll take the wins and work on things at practice, and we’ll be ready to play tomorrow evening. 

On team’s strengths:

I think the biggest key is that we’re playing together and we’re playing well together. We’re really strong in the boards and we’re finishing solid.

On playing Thailand tomorrow:

They’re more of an outside team; they’re a penetrating team and they like to shoot from the outside. Hopefully we can do a really good job on our closeouts and contest all of their shots.

On how this whole Olympic experience has been so far:

There’s nothing like what we’re going through right now that I had ever experienced before in my life. It’s an amazing experience. The Chinese volunteers have been so hospitable, and the USOC has been unbelievable with taking care of us and fulfilling all of our needs. It has been a tremendous experience meeting everybody.

On interacting with other Team USA athletes at the village and around venues:

We are actually heading over tomorrow to watch some of the swimming events tomorrow. The USA divers came to watch our game tonight and we’ve had some other teams come to see us. It’s really great.

 

De’Janae Boykin (Charles H. Flowers H.S./Springdale, Md.)

On her overall thoughts of today’s games:

They were both (Indonesia and Egypt) very tough teams, so we can’t come out slacking; we came out pretty hard. Our second game was pretty physical. We just have to come out and do our best.

On whether playing three straight games with out any rest makes them tougher:

I think it definitely does. It’s just us three girls, and we get no subs (due to Katie Lou being out for the moment); we’re just in there playing together so it does helps us a lot.

How was living in the village been for her so far:

It’s fun. I’m learning different languages and meeting new friends. There is nothing like this; it’s really fun. We’re going to go support the swim team and we’re trying to go watch track and field too.

Talent and teamwork are the keys to success, but sometimes your players need an extra push. With that in mind, here is this week’s question for the USA Basketball Coaches Network: Whether it's a drill, a speech, or some other type of incentive, what is your favorite motivational tactic?...

The 2015 USA Basketball Women’s U16 National Team jumped to an 8-0 lead and never looked back in its bronze medal 81-24 victory over host Mexico in the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship on Sunday night in Puebla, Mexico.

USA head coach Dori Oldaker (Mt. Lebanon H.S., Pa.) On the game: I felt really good about our kids and how they responded. I thought we played well. I thought they played very, very unselfish, and that was nice to see. It’s nice to finish on a really good note. What have you seen from this...

After fighting back from being down by as many as 22 points in the game to within six points in the fourth quarter, the USA Women’s U16 National Team’s comeback attempt fell short against Brazil, and the USA lost 72-63 in the semifinals of the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship.
