USA celebrates defeating Mexico

Danielle Drews, player of United States: It was a good team win we were able to use our entire lineup and everyone did their job and we were able to come successful as a group, I think Mexico is a good team they play good defense and I wish them good luck the rest of the tournament.

Claudia Rios, player of Mexico: It seemed like a very difficult game for us. The United States is a fairly strong team with young players, but with a lot of experience We had already faced them in the last Pan American Cup, this time we tried to give our best on the court but we could not achieve the victory.
