Thank goodness we won this game and didn't get beat like we did against Mexico on Thursday. At the end of the first quarter we were down 28-24, but in the second and third quarter we score a bunch of points 26-9 in the second and 24-9 in the third. We had quite an even spread of points between our players with two players getting 16 points and six players getting 10 points. This win and game finalizes our group C games and now we head to the second round.
