London Olympics 2012: Men's Basketball Schedule Update

With the conclusion of Wednesday's quarterfinal action in men's basketball at the London Olympics, we now know what the semifinals will look like.

The United States, of course featuring the Minnesota Timberwolves' Kevin Love, have drawn Argentina in the semis after defeating Australia 119-86. Argentina squeaked by Brazil with an 82-77 win on Wednesday.

Russia, featuring two Timberwolves in Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved, will be matched up against Spain. Russia beat Lithuania 83-74 to advance, while Spain edged France 66-59 in a chippy affair.

Russia vs. Spain is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. CT on Friday. Team USA vs. Argentina will take place after that -- it is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. CT.

For maximum Minnesota relevance, root for the United States and Russia on Friday. The gold and bronze medal games will be played on Sunday.
