We Just Keep On Rolling

 

Riding a 19-0 run that started in the second quarter and stretched until almost four minutes into the third period, the 2008 U.S. Men’s Olympic Team (6-0) overpowered Australia (3-3) 34-19 in the third period on its way to a 116-85 win and a 2008 Olympic semifinal berth Wednesday night at Wukesong Arena in Beijing, China.

 

Kobe Bryant turned in a 25-point performance as all 12 U.S. players scored in the contest. LeBron James added 16 points, Carmelo Anthony tallied 15 and Chris Bosh and Deron Williams each contributed 10 points.

The USA awaits the winner of today’s late game between Argentina (4-1) and Greece (3-2) in the semifinals on Friday.
