BEIJING (AP) -- Lisa Leslie sets U.S. Olympic record going
7-for-7 from the field as the women's team continues its
unblemished run through the Beijing Games with a 97-41 victory
against Mali.

Leslie finished with 16 points Wednesday night as the U.S. has
now won 28 straight Olympic contests. The last loss was to the
Unified Team in the semifinals of the 1992 Barcelona Games. The
Americans have run over their first three opponents winning by an
average of 47 points. They routed the Czech Republic, China, and
now Mali. The Americans play Spain next on Friday.
