CONGRATULATIONS TO TEAM USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The American women today won gold in Beijing, trouncing Australia 92-65. Although the Aussies kept it close in the early minutes, Team USA then took control and never looked back, leaving no question as to who's the number one team in the world.
Congratulations to all the players and to all the coaches! And the BasketCases are particularly thrilled for Northern Virginia native Kara Lawson, who we first watched play at nearby West Springfield High School. What a joy to see her win a gold medal AND lead all American scorers in the Gold Medal game!
Way to Go, U-S-A!!!
