(AP) U.S. women's hockey coach Katey Stone says her team won't decide until the last minute on whether to march in the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics.


Stone said Wednesday it will be a "game-day decision."


The Americans open Saturday at noon against Finland. Stone says the early rise means her team will likely eat breakfast roughly eight hours after the opening ceremony is scheduled to end.


Stone says the decision will depend on the team's preparation over the next two days.


The U.S. women are a favorite along with rival Canada in the eight-team tournament being played under a new format designed to make early games more competitive. The U.S. is trying to deny Canada a fourth straight Olympic gold medal.
