U.S. Women's U16 basketball team beats El Salvador by nearly 100 points in a FIBA Americas tournament

The United States ladies' ball program has been predominant, catching the last six Olympic gold decorations, just as the previous two World Cup gold awards. What's more, for reasons unknown, that predominance proceeds on the adolescent dimensions. 

During their first game in the FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Chile on Monday, the U.S. U16 group took on El Salvador and traveled to a 114-19 triumph. Indeed, that score is right, and maybe not too amazing when you take a gander at the size contrast between the two groups. 

The U.S. group exploited that size contrast to score 70 points in the paint, just as out-bounce back their Salvadoran rivals, 64-23. Londynn Jones drove the U.S. with 21, which alone would have been sufficient to win. 

For a look at the genuine contrast between the two projects, the whole game is accessible to watch on FIBA's YouTube page. 

While this game was never going to be close, winning by about 100 points begins to get practically awkward. Be that as it may, with a shot clock, and the Salvadoran resistance unfit to stop them, there wasn't much the U.S. group could do. Missing intentionally or getting shot clock infringement would have been increasingly impolite. 

With the success, the U.S. U16 group improved to 25-1 in general in the FIBA Americas competitions. In the five past releases, they've won four gold awards and one bronze.
