There’s been some good basketball play over in London for the 2012 Olympics thus far, and we’re now out of the pool play and set to head into the quarterfinals. To keep up with Kobe Bryant, Team USA and the rest of the action, here’s the schedule for Wednesday, August 8:
Olympic Basketball Quarterfinals Schedule
|Russia vs. Lithuania||North Greenwich Arena||London, England|
|France vs. Spain||North Greenwich Arena||London, England|
|Brazil vs. Argentina||North Greenwich Arena||London, England|
|USA vs. Australia||North Greenwich Arena||London, England|
All times have been conveniently converted into Laker time (PST), of course.
Should Team USA advance, they would face off against the winner of the Brazil-Argentina game sometime Friday (times have not been set just yet), while the winners of France-Spain and Russia-Lithuania will also face off on the same day.
After a close game against Lithuania the Americans came out strong against Argentina. They will look to carry this momentum into the elimination round and bring home their second straight Gold medal at the end of the week.
