Greenwell Co-MVP as USA wins FIBA Americans U 16 Championship...Lyttle to miis six games


-USA routs Brazil 73-40 to take the Gold

-Atlanta's Sancho Lyttle out for six games.

USA wins in Merida and will move on to the World
Championships next.

Owensboro's Becca Greenwell was named co-MVP of the FIBA Americas U16 Tournament that the USA won convincingly in Merida, Mexico yesterday by 33 points over Brazil. She shared the honor with Brazil's Izabella Fredrico Sangali. USA came out strong in the final game and aided by a record setting seven steals by guard Jannah Tucker...was never seriously challenged. Four USA players hit double figures in the win...Lianne Harper led the way with 12 points and Tucker added eleven. Mercedes Russell (10 points, 12 grabs) and Greenwell (10 points, 3 assists) did the most damage for Team USA, who led 40-18 at halftime and 63-27 after the third quarter.

"I thought it was a great game." Mercedes Russell spoke after the contest. "We let them have a little run at the end of the second quarter and then we came back after halftime and picked it up and finished it."  


Atlanta Dream's Sancho Lyttle will miss the next six games to compete for Spain in the EuroBasket Women 2011. She will not play today against the Minnesota Lynx and won't be back in a Dream uniform until July 9th...when the Dream play Chicago.

Lyttle is currently the Dream's second leading scorer and rebounder...averaging 12.5 a game and 7.8 rebounds.

Sometimes, when it pours.

Atlanta is 1-4 so far this season.

Lyttle is a native of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines but obtained Spanish citizenship in 2010. She played her college ball at Houston.

The Dream has signed former Oklahoma front liner Courtney Paris to replace her while she's gone.

We leave you today with three great father's day quotes:

"A new father quickly realizes that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times he is in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station."  -Bill Cosby.

"Every mother knows that the man her daughter marries will be better than the father of this daughter but insists that the wife her son takes won't match up to his mother's status." -Cal Rieger

"I realized after my daughter turned 16 that the terms DAD and ATM Machine were interchangeable."  -Mark Thompson.
