The U.S. women's basketball team was loose after practice. They've won their first three games, scoring over 100 points in each one. So why not have some fun. Breanna Stewart and Elena Delle Donne decided it was a good time to work on an alley-oop. It took a few tries, but they finally nailed it.

After Stewart dunked, Delle Donne did her own jam off one step. Brittney Griner was busy playing knockout on the other end of the court, or she definitely would have joined in.
Dunking wasn't the only fun going on at practice. Diana Taurasi ribbed Griner about her lone title at Baylor.
When Taurasi was asked about the assemblage of UConn greats on the U.S. team, she was quickly interrupted by Griner.The 6-foot-8 star center, who went to Baylor, reminded her Phoenix Mercury teammate that she was on the first team to go 40-0.Taurasi quickly dismissed the claim asking Griner, "When was the last time you got a question about being 40-0 at Baylor? Never. No one even knows you won it in Baylor."
