Kansas’ McCray starts as U.S. rips France


Kansas University’s Danielle McCray started and scored nine points as the U.S. women’s basketball team smashed France, 118-30, in its World University Games opener Wednesday in Belgrade, Serbia.

McCray, a 5-foot-11 senior from Olathe, added two rebounds and an assist during 16 minutes of duty as coach Charli Turner Thorne substituted liberally during the blowout.

The U.S. team forced 44 turnovers and shot 56.1 percent from the floor. McCray made all three of her field-goal attempts and was 3-for-4 from the free throw line.

The U.S. will continue pool play today against Great Britain.

This is terrific! Congratulations to Danielle. She's reaping the benefits of her hard work this year. I'm looking forward to the upcoming season!

Nice win, but missing a FT to fall short of double digits? Tsk, tsk!

I assume the minutes were spread out a lot, using lots of combinations and seeing who works best together.

Help your coach keeping all the players 'on line.' Here's to team success -- doubt if luck becomes a factor.

Another reason for France to hate us...

118-30? Wow...

Keep it up McCray!
