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