    Do not call them “female basketball players.” These are basketball players, full stop. And though they have big shoes to fill...this team is considered the best one yet. “We have a ton of talent in the U.S.,” says Sue Bird. “We could field a second team.” Adds Elena Delle Donne: “We have players dropping three-pointers from half court. It’s an incredible group.”

    Bird is considered the best point guard ever, and Delle Donne has a 95 percent free-throw record, the highest in league history. Their one hurdle? With busy WNBA schedules for all 12 players, Team U.S.A. trains together for only about a week. Coach Geno Auriemma helps them gel quickly. “He gets the point across that it’s not about the best talent out there; it’s about elevating one another’s game,” says Delle Donne. “[So] we’re able to click—and shine.”

    For more on these incredible athletes, pick up the July issue of Glamour, on newsstands now.

    Dropping 3-pointers from half court? I'm guessing the ballhog chick from Chino Hills was there. Or Bird at the Buzzer.

    I moved this to the Olympic forum, which is NOT Siberia. It's just a forum for Olympics related topics.

    Olympic Forum? Meh... half the team is UConn, and some of the rest have some UC/CT connections. Article would get a lot more eyeballs here :(
