USA’s Eric Gordon, who led the Americans with 16 points, goes up for a basket over Croatia’s Leni Ukic during their preliminary round matchup of the world championships Saturday in Istanbul, Turkey. “People think we’re too young or too small, but I think we’re playing well as a team, and we play much faster when we’re smaller, and we’re just an overall good team,” Gordon said.
