Flashback: Medina Dixon leads the U.S. to a 114-59 win over Lithuania

  • Date:
    Aug 3, 1992

Finishing off pool play against host Spain, again the USA's pressure defense and fast paces offensive attack rolled as the USA scored an impressive 114-59 win.

The 114 USA point total again set a U.S. record, breaking the mark the 1992 team had just set four days earlier. 

Spain hung with the U.S. in the game's early goings and trailed by just five, 33-28, with just six minutes remaining in the opening half. Clos­ing out the first half by outscoring the Spaniards 18-4, at half the U.S. had opened up a 51-32 lead. 

The USA squad dominated the second half and went on to post its 114-59 win.

As had been the case in its pre­vious games, every healthy USA player scored (10). Medina Dixon finished with 28 points (13-18 FGs), setting a USA Olympic scoring record, and added five rebounds and six steals. Daedra Charles added 16 points and seven rebounds, and Katrina Mc­Clain recorded 15 points, eight rebounds and eight steals. 

"Yeah, and I think I'm still in the zone," admitted Dixon when asked if she felt that special shooter's feeling in the game. "My teammates know I like to set up before I shoot. I don't really like to shoot on the move. They did a great job of getting me the ball."
