USA vs. Australia

With the 2012 Olympics under way both USA men’s and women’s basketball teams continue to flourish as expected, a new task arrives for the women. The task is stopping the twin towers of  Australia, 6′ 8″ Liz Cambage and 6′ 5″ Lauren Jackson. Both ladies are very skilled players, but there size is just untouchable. I watched a bit of their game against China today and I must say I was very impressed. I found my self rooting for the two Aussies as they seemed invincible. All the team has to do is dish it to Lauren or Liz, and they deliver 99.99% of the time. Am I saying that USA will lose? Of course not, I’m just saying that THEY WILL have problems. I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up rooting for Australia on Thursday.
