The US team have not lost a match since the 1996 Summer Games and are aiming for their seventh consecutive gold medal as they started playing at the Tokyo Games against Nigeria early Tuesday morning in the phase of groups. After half time, the United States started to take control of this game as they have a 70-50 lead with 12 minutes remaining.

Led by WNBA legends Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi and Sylvia Fowles, who among the three have accumulated 11 Olympic gold medals, the United States is once again the overwhelming favorite to be the champion again. He begins his journey to another first place against Nigeria. This is a rematch from just over a week ago, when these two teams faced off in an exhibition match before the Las Vegas Olympics.

The United States will attempt to replicate that success and remove all traces of residual rust against a Nigerian team that will attempt to create a surprise against the heavily favored Americans.
