The Gems of Zimbabwe caught the world's attention, Friday, after a convincing 79-49 win over Sri Lanka in their opening Vitality 2019 World Cup game in Liverpool, England.
Lynsey Gallagher top-scored for the Scots with 23 goals as her team improved on a tight two-point lead at the end of the third quarter to gradually pull away from their opponents.

"It's definitely a driving force behind it, knowing we have players to know how to go out and do it, and hopefully we can combine with them to try to get another gold for the team".
