1984 U.S. Women's Olympic Basketball Team

1984 U.S. Women's Olympic Basketball Team

Just as the 1980 Olympic basketball tournament suffered from the USA’s decision not to participate, the 1984 Olympics saw the Soviet bloc countries decide to abstain. However, by the time the competition ended, the U.S. women had plenty to celebrate as they cruised to their first Olympic gold with a 6-0 slate. Southern California’s Cheryl Miller starred in Los Angeles and led the Americans with 16.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 3.2 steals a game. It also marked the first of an incredible five Olympiads for Teresa Edwards.
