First upset in the Women's competition, as Spain was defeated by Russia 17-15. Spain's roster includes former 2009 U19 silver medal standouts Cristina Ouvina, Leonor Rodriguez, Amaya Gastaminza and Sr NT Laura Nicholls. Spain men suffered their 2nd setback with Slovenia (after Serbia).
USA women won their 4th straight game at 21 and over, this time with few seconds left, with Argentina. South Americans played well and were clearly overcome just in the final minutes, providing fine passes and good prenetration. But US size and athleticism was finally overwhelming and Diggins & Co are cruising towards the final rounds.
