Women's basketball team hobbled with injuries
ATHENS, Greece -- The U.S. women's basketball team will march into these Olympics with a limp.
Or as coach Van Chancellor might say in his heavy Mississippi drawl, they've got a hitch in their git-along.
Outside shooting specialist Katie Smith has a bruised right knee. Three-time Olympian Sheryl Swoopes has a sore right foot. Forward Tina Thompson is dealing with sore calf muscles in both legs and Diana Taurasi, a rookie sensation in the WNBA, is recovering from a hip pointer.
