Olympic Update:USA Basketball Defeats Nigeria, 156-73

Boys ain't Smilling

Okay, if you are one of my regular visitors, you would know that I do an Olympic Update daily, just Dianah'sPlace's way of being a part of the gig, but yesterday I was a bit broken by our humongous loss. Kai! I kne we were not going to win sha (lets be honest, this is USA not Tunisia) but this margin *smh* I did not see it coming.

Anyway, this is how Huffington is telling it:
The last group in England with this many records was The Beatles.
The U.S. men's Olympic basketball team beat Nigeria 156-73 Thursday night, an epic blowout that answered the Americans' detractors and sent a clear message to let them be.
After two opening routs that provoked criticism of their slow starts and outside shooting, the Americans rewrote the record books.
They led by 26 in the first quarter, had an Olympic-record 78 points in the first half and Carmelo Anthony scored 37 points, including 10 of 12 3-pointers, to break the U.S. single-game scoring record in less than three quarters.

Don't worry guys, at least we were at the Olympics, lets just hope our basketball team does not go the same route as our football team.
