The Redeem Team came to Bejing with one goal in mind; win the Gold. Matter of fact anything less than a Gold medal and a dominating performance would be considered a waste. Wednesday in China the Redeem Team took another step in their quest for perfection. Despite a slow start, the Redeem Team was able to trounce an Australian squad that had given the U.S.A their toughest match to date. Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 25 in his best Olympic performance on the day. The win moves the U.S. into the semifinals and guarantees them at least a shot at a medal. But we all know there is only one acceptable medal this team can bring home.
