Agreed. The US team that played in the 2015 Pan-American Games was made up of a bunch of college players and they lost to Canada (both the men and the women). At the senior level, the USA reigns supreme, but below that, there's much more parity. Honestly, even at the senior level, a lot of teams have come close to beating Team USA. They've played close games against Australia, Serbia, and France in group play as well as Spain in the semi-finals.
