University of South Carolina Women’s Basketball coach, Dawn Staley, has positioned her team to win an unprecedented 7th straight gold medal for Team USA, advancing to the final game with a semifinal win over Serbia. The Serbs effort should be credited; they played hard, scrappy, and strong on offensive rebounds but Team USA’s defense, a coaching trademark of Coach Staley, was crushing. Despite excessive turnovers USA took a big lead early and never looked back. Team USA awaits the winner of the France vs Japan semifinal for the gold.
USA 79 – Serbia 59
