Against Canada in the USA’s 12-10 loss to start the day, the contest featured five tied scores in the first 3:05. A basket from Blake Dietrick (Princeton/Wellesley, Mass), knotted the score at 6-6 at 6:55, but from there the USA went cold. Not scoring for 4:49, the USA gave up three points to Canada during that stretch and trailed 9-6 at 3:18.

Breanna Richardson (Mississippi State/Conyers, Ga.) scored at 2:06 and N'dea Jones (Texas A&M/Lawrenceville, Ga.) at 1:01 to make it 9-8, but Canada scored twice to go back up 11-8. Richardson made a 2-pointer that brought the USA within one point, 11-10, at 26.0 seconds, but Canada added the final point as time ran out.

Dietrick, Jones and Richardson each scored three points.

When the USA played host Romania in its second game, a quarterfinal berth was on the line for the winning team, and the USA came out on top, 15-9. The USA held Romania scoreless for the first 3:59 while it jumped out to a 6-0 lead, including four points from Jordan Reynolds (Tennessee/Portland, Ore.).

Several times Romania cut the gap to two points, including 7-5 at 4:01 and 10-8 at 1:31, but the USA responded each time. Up 10-8, the U.S. defense gave up just one more point while Dietrick scored a 1, Richardson hit a 2 and Jones made a free throw to secure the 15-9 victory.

Richardson had seven points, and Jones and Reynolds each had four points.
