2022 World Cup Group A Game 3 September 24th

The United States was at full strength on Saturday with A’ja Wilson being the final piece of the puzzle as a win would make them the first team to officially clinch a spot in the quarterfinals. After a tense first quarter, they built a lead by halftime and while Li Meng and China got the margin closer, they still fell 77-63. Kang Lee-Seul was on absolute fire for South Korea in a 99-66 win over Jonquel Jones and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Arella Guirantes and Puerto Rico nearly pulled off a massive effort as Belgium had to deviate from their usual gameplan and pressed their advantage in the paint by feeding Kyara Linskens to escape 68-65.
