London Olympics 2012: USA Women's Basketball Goes For Gold Agasint France

The USA Women's basketball team used a strong second half performance to beat Australia 86-73 in the semifianls to advance to Saturday's gold medal game in the 2012 Olympics.

Team USA will try to earn their fifth straight gold medal in the event when they take on France. The French team rolled past Russia 81-64 in the semis to earn a shot at their first Olympic medal in women's basketball.

Minnesota Lynx players Maya Moore, Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen remain part of the playing rotation for Team USA and will certainly play a strong role in trying to keep Team USA's gold medal streak alive. For an excellent preview of the game, check out SB Nation's Swish Appeal.
