There seems to be no stopping the U.S. women’s basketball team in their quest for a sixth straight Olympic gold.

The women plowed through their group B pool unbeaten — of course — with their latest victim China going down in a 105-62 rout Aug. 14. The Japanese team is ranked at a lowly 16th, so they’ve got a tough road ahead. The U.S. team scored over 100 points in all five of their group play games and are likely to keep going at that rate throughout their powerful Rio run.
The ladies are led by 6’8″ Center and Phoenix Mercury standout Brittney Griner and Seattle Storm Forward/Center Breanna Stewart. As if that wasn’t enough firepower, the team features four players from WNBA champs the Minnesota Lynx, including the league’s standout star Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles, Lindsay Whalen and Seimone Augustus. How on Earth could they possibly lose with this kind of firepower?
