Should be a hard fought game with an appearance in the championship game on the line.

Looks like Spain and Turkey are going to battle down to the wire. I would kind of like to play Turkey on their home court as that would add a lot of energy to the arena. But my money is on Spain to pull this one out.

Torrens is a very good player and she saved Spain.
It is fun watching international players play for their teams compared to on WNBA teams. The WNBA coaches don't always get the best out of their players - Gruda is a prime example for France - playing against the best WNBA players in this tournament she was unstoppable - playing in LA she was seldom used and ineffective. Same for Dumerc in Atlanta. Though Dumerc had just a terrible game today.

AUS already in 1 and 1. Maya shooting well, Griner was frustrated early and already out. Dupree in. Wait, Griner back in for Charles now.

Maya with a great one-touch follow on a rebound. Two fouls on Griner now.

Also, what is with "When the Saints Go Marching In" being played all the time?

12-11 AUS after the Griner foul. I think we need some Whalen action.

Bad pass by D, Erin Phillips takes it in for 2. 14-11 AUS.

Griner to Dupree for 2. 14-13 AUS. Whalen checking in. You're welcome for the coaching advice, Geno.

Tolo is really taking it to Griner. Scores over her. 16-13 AUS. Bird fouls the shooter.

Augustus in too. Hopefully the subs can get something going. Burton misses both free throws.

Taurasi is PISSED. She is getting fouled, but she needs to cool it. She's already picked up one technical.

Charles throws the ball away. She is not having a great game.

Taurasi just willing herself to the basket and drawing fouls.

Nice move by Dupree to put USA ahead by 17-16.

Tolo came out strong in the paint. DT being very aggressive and getting into the paint and drawing fouls.
