UConn commit will be on ESPN2 tonight

Just a reminder that the United States/Mexico game will be televised live by ESPN2 beginning at 9 p.m. The leading scorer for the 0-2 U.S. squad is UConn commit Breanna Stewart, the only high school player on the team.

After two of the three preliminary games, Stewart was leading all players in rebounding (averaging 16 per game) and blocked shots (2.5) and was sixth in scoring with an average of  16 points per game while also ranking in the top 10 in steals, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage. As a point of reference, the second-leading rebounder is WNBA veteran Erika de Souza so Stewart isn't only thriving in her latest chance at facing international experience, but she is doing it again some professional stars.

The down side is that the U.S. team won't be bringing home a medal. The best the U.S. squad can do is play in the seventh-place game tomorrow since the U.S. will finish last in Group A regardless of tonight's results.
