Katrina McClain hit all eight shots from the floor and finished with 19 points Saturday, leading the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team to a 103-75 victory over Brazil.
Saturday's game was just an exhibition, since both teams have already qualified for two of the eight Olympic berths. But the Americans played like the gold medal was at stake.McClain, a 6-foot-2 forward from Georgia, added 8 rebounds and 3 steals in just 23 minutes of action. Vicky Bullett and Teresa Edwards each had 13 points for the U.S.
No one played more than 26 minutes for the U.S. women, who had eight players with 8 or more points. Surprisingly, U.S. coach Theresa Grentz said her team still has room for improvement.
"I not declaring that we're there yet," Grentz said. "We still have a lot of work to do, but we'll get there soon."
Brazil's Hortencia Oliva led all scorers with 25 points.
