After an intense and close semi-final game, the U.S. Women basketball team are headed for gold for the fifth straight time. The Americans struggled a bit and even trailed at the half and at the end of the third. The U.S. Women held on though and beat a tough Australian team.
“We’ve done a good job of taking everything in stride. We treat each game like a gold medal game,” Diana Taurasi said prior to their game against Australia.
Next for the U.S. Women’s basketball team is France, who they will face for the gold on Saturday.
