U.S. opens with easy win

Former UConn stars Swin Cash, Tina Charles and Renee Montgomery had 12 points each as the U.S. national team defeated Famila Schio77-48  in Naples, Italy on Friday.

Baylor rising junior center Brittney Griner led the U.S. with 15 points while Cappie Pondexter added 11 points.

The U.S. will play the winner of the game between host Pallacanestro Napoli and Ros Casares tomorrow at 2 p.m. (Eastern time) in the championship game of a four-team, two-day tournament. Then the squad will wrap up the Italian portion of its European tour and training camp with a practice on Sunday before heading to Spain for the next stage of training.
