Jeff Walz (USA and University of Louisville head coach)
On the game:
I thought we did a really nice job. We made some adjustment at halftime, came out and played a little bit harder. I thought we shared the ball. Instead of occupying it with the dribble, we did a really nice job of finding the person up the floor and attacked with the pass.

What was different in the second half?
We came out in the second half with an attitude of trying to get each other the ball. We shared the ball extremely well, which showed with our assists in the second half. And then defensively, we were more dialed in with our scouting report. I thought we forced them into a few things, and then we scored out of their turnovers.

Monique Billings (UCLA/Corona, Calif.)
What was it like to play in your first USA Basketball game today?
It was crazy. At first it was kind of mind blowing to realize you’re playing for your country. I just took on that personal sense of pride. I really just wanted to do the best I could and enjoy the moment.

How do you think you played as a team today?
It was really natural. We have a great team chemistry. I think we feed off each other well, because we all want to see each other succeed and play well.

Jordin Canada (UCLA/Los Angeles, Calif.)
On the game:
In the first half, we kind of had some good moments and some bad moments, but in the second half we really pulled it together. We had great team chemistry, our team passing was huge for us, and defense. I thought we got after it in the second half, and we were able to get more steals. Overall, I thought we did a good job, but we can definitely improve.

You had five assists to lead the team. What is it like to play with this group:
It is so much fun, being able to run, run, run. That is what I love to do. I love to push the ball and be able to throw the ball to shooters and have them knock down shots. I love playing with his group.

Asia Durr (Louisville/ Douglasville, Ga.)
On the game:
We played well as a team. We started off slow, but we got it back on track. I think the most important thing about us playing tonight was getting stops and limited them to one shot on each possession.

It was the team’s first game. How did it feel on the court?
It felt good. I think we gelled pretty well. We have only been practicing together for like a week. For us to play that well together as a team, I think it shows what we are capable of.

Brittany McPhee (Stanford/Normandy Park, Wash.)
What was it like to play in your first USA Basketball game today?
It was a cool and surreal moment. You dream about coming to play for the USA, so it was really cool and fun to be out here with such amazing players.

How do you think you played as a team today?
We played well. We started off a bit slow, but then we started pushing the ball, attacking and sharing the ball well, and things played out for us.
