Olympic Games 2012 Daily Preview: Team USA Takes On Australia In Men's Basketball

After skating through group play without a loss, Team USA will take on Australia in the quarterfinals of men's basketball at the 2012 Summer Olympics on Wednesday. Team USA will be the heavy favorite against an Australian team with only one NBA player: San Antonio Spurs reserve point guard Patrick Mills. Team USA has already defeated Argentina, Lithuania, Nigeria, Tunisia and France during the tournament.

The gold medal match in women's beach volleyball will also be of heavy interest. Americans Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings will take Americans Jen Kessy and April Ross at 1:00 p.m.

Medals will also be handed out in men's sailing in the 49er race and in many track and field events, including the men's 110 meter hurdles.
