Australia beats US in women’s basketball

Australia beat the United States 74-60 in the women’s basketball Good Luck Beijing tournament.

“Obviously, the result was not what we wanted in terms of a win,” U.S. coach Anne Donovan said. “But I was pleased with several things I saw out there today. No. 1, it’s good to have Lisa Leslie back on the court for us again. She’s done a tremendous job getting herself back in shape after having a baby and being away from us essentially since Athens. It’s great to have her back on the floor again.”

“We’ve had four practices with this new and very young team, so overall I thought we did a nice job after four days of practice,” Donovan said. “It hurts us to lose this game against Australia, but we know we’re going to continue to improve and get better as the tournament goes on.”
