USA women embarrass the country
Maybe if the team had used it's Louisiana flavor a little more, they might have made it to the FIBA championship game. Shreveport's Alana Beard played just over 10 minutes and didn't score, while Summerfield's Cheryl Ford and Baton Rouge's Seimone Augustus did not play.
