Australia, be proud of your Boomers. The Boomers were not intimidated at all today as they took it right up to Team USA. The first quarter saw the Boomers bring it early. They were annoying Team USA - forcing their stars into tough shots and frustration quickly ensued. Carmelo Anthony hit the opening three-point shot in what was a sign of things to come. He kept Team USA close - when others were simply being outworked by their Australian opponents.
