US Women's 3 on 3 win golf medalThe U.S. women’s 3-on-3 basketball team has made history.

Allisha Gray, Kelsey Plum, Stefanie Dolson and Jackie Young won gold in the inaugural 3-on-3 basketball competition, defeating Russia 18-15 Wednesday evening at Tokyo’s Aomi Urban Sports Park.

The U.S. women stormed out to a 7-2 lead and never looked back. They played suffocating defense that had Russia visibly frustrated during the contest. Russia attempted to make things interesting late, cutting the deficit to as close as three, but the U.S. team remained in control throughout.

Dolson scored a team-high seven points in the gold-medal game. Plum contributed with five points.

“This is really cool,” Plum said following the gold medal win. “I just feel super blessed.”
