TAMU starting to lose composure. They’re down 15 midway through the third. Carter has 25 pts.

I will say this. Team USA defense on Carter is terrible, and she's just really good. Honestly best player on the floor. Team USA simply has no answer for her, which is surprising to me...

Carter is quick and strong. Syl has a hand on her arm and Carter still finished. She’s had a few good passes in this game, too. If she can play without trying to do too much when things get a little shaky she could be a really dangerous player.

I can see why Carter shoots & drives a lot. Teammates can’t hit shots. If she gets on a decent team, I think she’ll be a good if not great player.

Team USA doesn't have anyone that can guard her. Sue and Diana aren't spring chickens, and have never been known as defensive stoppers. Seimone is long, but older as well. Diggins-Smith might be the only one with the food speed, and is a good perimeter defender. However, she didn't play last season, and I don't think Clarendon did either. Plum probably doesn't have a prayer of locking her up either.

Carter is a dynamic scorer. I thought she last year she was equal to Arike as a sophomore. She just doesn't have the help on her team so she has to put up shots.

I think team USA wins by 30+. They are too good for Carter to score against by herself, and she takes a ton of shots. Even against normal competition, she's not a great % shooter, just a huge volume shooter.
Wow, you are right, 30 pts ...

After Ciera Johnson has her double double vs UALR, Coach Blair said it was going to be a bit harder against Fowles, Nneka etc.

The good news for us and the other college teams is that we won’t face that level often if at all against NCAA teams.

I'm beginning to question whether Team USA has much interest in making anybody look bad on this tour. Easing into all of them so far.
