I still don’t understand why the American coach didn’t change players earlier in the first two games – injecting Robinson into the game and possibly others. Robinson made the third game very competitive energizing the team even though she made some errors as well.

Brazil’s Game was outstanding especially the Blockings and Floor defense they’re superb, Thaisa and Fabiana was aggressive in blocking while Fe Garay sheilla and Jacquiline dominated the scoring and ofcourse with Camilla Brait with the floor defense..
