U.S. had no issue with first-round opponent Senegal in an exhibition last week, so hopefully this will be a chance to get newcomers (like the Seattle Storm late arrivals Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd) up to speed and integrated with the rest of the team. Link below for U.S. Hoops press release.

According to a separate article in ESPNw, "The Americans' other Group D games are against China on Sunday and Latvia on Tuesday (both also we be on ESPN+ at 1 p.m. ET). All the tournament's group play will be on ESPN+, and ESPN networks will carry the quarterfinals and semifinals on a channel to be determined, with the championship game on ESPN. The World Cup winner gets an automatic berth into the 2020 Summer Olympics."
