Q: What was going through your mind when you saw the USA walk away with only bronze?
A: I saw it coming, to be honest with you. Teams internationally have just been getting better. Since ’92 and ’96, after that, teams have been getting better. They’ve had a chance to play against us and see what we do and how we train and how we work. They go home and work on that stuff and come back and they’re better ballplayers. So now you have an even playing field where those players over there aren’t looking at us and being intimidated by us. They feel like they can compete with us and should beat us.
