USA looked deflated after the tough loss they suffered the previous night, but Puerto Rico just doesn't have enough talent to stay with the better teams...even against those that don't bring their A game.

On Saturday the Nations camp got into full swing with morning scrimmages between the college players followed by afternoon and evening games among the Nations U18 players. It's a bit of a 3-ring circus as at times all 6 courts are being used making it impossible to take in even half of the action at one time. So the dilemma is whether to sit and watch complete games or move around and try to take in as much action as possible. I find myself opting for the latter.

There is an excitement that follows Team USA for these Olympics that we haven’t seen in years. Through four impressive exhibitions, this star-studded team seems poised to reassert its dominance on the rest of the world.
This is the best team that the USA has had since ’96 and is definitely talented enough to win the gold. However, nothing is guaranteed.
