Out WNBA Dallas Wings guard Erin Phillips, participating in the Olympics on the Australian Opals women’s basketball team, is headed to the quarter finals.
The Opals earned a 5-0 record in Group A last week.
For their next match, Australia faces Serbia on Wednesday, Aug. 17. Serbia goes into the quarter finals with a 2-3 record in Group B.
Australia and the U.S. are the only two unbeaten women’s basketball teams.
Here’s what Basketball australia has to say about Phillips:
Erin Phillips has been quieter, held scoreless in two contests, but her game is not always helped by stats as teams still need to honour her shot which opens up the lanes for Mitchell. Her three assist average is good for third best on the team too.
