Terps women continue to dominate in World University Games

The United States, which is being represented by the Maryland women’s basketball team, continued playing well on both ends of the court in a 102-53 win over Poland in World University Games pool play Tuesday.

The U.S. gave little room to Poland’s offense throughout the game. Offensively, all 11 Americans scored, led by sophomore Blair Watson with 19 points and 10 boards and Michigan State alum Tori Jankoska had 19 points as well.

Terps sophomore Kaila Charles added 18 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field, and senior Ieshia Small added 13 points.

“I thought our defense today was really effective,” coach Brenda Frese said. “We shared the basketball really well with 23 assists and we shot the ball well with 10 3s. These games have been huge for us in our growth as a team.”

USA will take on the Czech Republic on Wednesday morning to finish pool play. The quarterfinals and semifinals will be Friday and Saturday, then the medal round games will be played Monday.
