Team USA Golden Again

Congratulations to Team USA Basketball for bringing home the gold medal after hanging on to beat Spain today, 118-107.

So much for cruising to the gold medal, though. Don't let the double-digit final deficit fool you, this game was tight for much of the second half. Huge head nods to Spain for laying it all on the line and executing a great game plan to push the USA team to the limit.

Juan Carlos Navarro and Rudy Fernandez made sweet hoop after sweet hoop while the Gasol boys held it down around the bucket. They gave the U.S. team plenty to choke on.

Fortunately, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade kept the airway clear and Spain from taking the lead. Kobe Bryan't fourth quarter effort was the difference. He found his shot when it mattered including a dagger 4-point play from behind the arc. Awesome.

Congratst to Coach K and Jerry Colangelo for setting this team up and setting the tone for a gold medal team that made our national pride swell. Now maybe Coach K can take over U.S. Track and Field and work with those 4X100 teams for 2012.
