U.S. rolls into final

Tamika Catchings led a balanced attack with 14 points while Sylvia Fowles had 13 points and six rebounds as the United States defeated Spain 106-70 in the semifinals of the FIBA World Championships on Saturday.

Angel McCoughtry and former UConn star Diana Taurasi had 11 points each while former Huskies Swin Cash, Asjha Jones and Tina Charles had nine points. UConn senior Maya Moore had eight points while former UConn star Sue Bird had six points and five assists for the U.S., who will face host Czech Republic in Sunday's gold-medal game.

Spain, which was hindered by the absence of the injured Sancho Lyttle, was led by Marta Fernandez's 16 points.

The U.S./Czech Republic game is at 2 p.m. and will be aired on NBA TV.
