U.S. WOMEN KICK OFF EUROPEAN TOUR WITH WIN

Yolanda Griffith scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds as the United States women's basketball team opened a seven-game European tour with a 56-47 victory over Poland Saturday.

Poland used a 12-2 burst to close within 50-43 with less than five minutes remaining. Nikki McCray stole the ball on Poland's next possession and fed Griffith for a layup with 4:07 left, and the U.S. team held on.
