2012 London Olympics, Women's Basketball: Team USA, Team France To Battle For Gold

The United States' women's basketball team has won the gold medal at the last four Olympic Games, and they'll be looking to make it five in a row on Saturday when they take on France in the 2012 gold medal game. Team USA has had little trouble so far in these Olympics, winning all seven games with a total point differential of plus-239.

The French have also cruised through the tournament so far, winning seven straight as well. They did receive a tough test, though, in the quarterfinals, when they snuck past the Czech Republic by only three points.

The United States, meanwhile, was tested a big in the semifinals vs. Australia, finding themselves up only four points at the half. But they breezed through the second half, eventually winning the game by 13 points.

Game date: Saturday, August 11

Game time: 3:00 p.m. CT
