BRATISLAVA, Slovakia - Virginia's Monica Wright (Woodbridge, Va.) and the USA Basketball U19 World Championship Team captured an 84-60 win over host Slovakia at the 2007 World Championships in Slovakia on Wednesday.
The rising sophomore finished with three points in 10 minutes of action.
USA Head Coach Doug Bruno Quotes
On the game tonight:
"I think we were more focused defensively tonight and more into passing lanes, but that also is function of who we are playing. This was not an easy team by any stretch of the imagination but it was an easier match-up for us. Tonight our bench gave us a very nice lift. That was important, because Monica Wright got into foul trouble, so Angie Bjorklund comes in and injects us with some points and did a good job defensively. Italee Lucas also did a good job off the bench as well, and so did Melissa Lechlinter."
"Allyssa DeHaan is going to be vital to our success, but tonight was one of those games where they were a smallish line up and we wanted to stay in man rather than zone. The bench overall was better, but we still need some consistent play from our inside game. We need to get somebody else besides Jantel scoring inside."
On advancing to the quarterfinals:
"I think we are as far along as we can be at this juncture. We're going to have to play a very good and well coached Czech Republic team on Friday. They're a quick team and they run the floor, and yet the are also very effective in their half court execution. We really have a lot of work to do, and now it's one-and-out time."
