Olympics 2012: Michigan Grad Krista Phillips And Canada Advance To Basketball Elimination Round

Canada will be a part of the elimination round in women's basketball and that means at least one more game for Michigan graduate Krista Phillips. The Canadians will face the United States.

The United States has won all five games of the tournament. The two teams will play against each other on Tuesday with the loser going home.

Phillips started at center today for Canada in its 72-63 loss to Australia. She played 12 minutes and had one rebound but failed to score.

Canada is 2-3 in its five games of the preliminary round. It lost to Australia, France and Russia, while beating Brazil and Great Britain.

Phillips has started all five games for Canada and scored eight points on Friday against Brazil.

She graduated from Michigan in 2010 and averaged 8.6 points per game during her career.
