Against the USA, Australia were jumped by a 4-20 opening term and more pain was inflicted before half-time as they found themselves trailing by 22 points.

The Devils showed impressive grit out of the main break though and Teisha Shadwell and Annabelle Lindsay were able to get reward for effort by getting to the free-throw line.

Shadwell also shone at the defensive end, picking up two steals in the third term as the Devils went on to win the quarter, 14-12.
