Since the disappointment of winning the bronze medal in Athens in 2004, the USA Basketball program has revamped how they select the team and how they approach the international game.
"They've found the way to play the FIBA game, and they're playing way better. They have players that are superstars, but they have a commitment, they want to win and they prepare, and they know what they're doing."
--Luis Scola, team member of Argentina Olympic basketball team and current NBA player.
Team USA is playing in the semifinals against Argentina today for a spot in the gold medal game in Sunday.
