    Oh you mean the same Women's team that shot 41% three point shooting the entire tournament? Standing by what you say isn't difficult, all that takes is a little pride, actually backing up what is said with facts is another story.

    when it counts Stuart when it counts. DWade on average had a good tournament ,too. and what a dunk by Lebron against Greece when it was a
    2 possession game down by 6. We always want to revert to pressure defense use our athleticism BS one on one play and in both cases we lost when it counted. Face it our whole system is bad we have 300million people
    and cant find 5 who know how to bust a zone. and it s starting to trickle into the womens game... we need FIBA coaches to come to the USA
    like the NBA does...PLEASE!!!!!

    Again, you are comparing the men's team with the women's team, which just goes to show that you haven't paid much attention to the Women's game - they are two completely different animals. Not only in their philosophy and history, but in the opponents they face.

    Historically, the US women have never dominated international basketball like the US Men's Team has, so to say that we need to wake up and change our system, that there is something wrong with the US Women's Team is wholly incorrect, and more importantly insulting to the opponents. In short, the level of play in the Women's game has always been equal with 3-5 teams entering each tournament as legitimate contenders. Look at the history of the Women's game, this isn't a fluke that the US Women lost, they've lost as much as they have won in the last 3 decades.

    I'd like you to start pointing out some faults that the US WOMEN have done incorrectly instead of using their male counterpoints as arguments because they are not the same. The more you talk about the Men to explain why the Women have failed, the less I believe you that you've watched a single US women's game (which was already suspicious in the beginning).
