    Brittney Griner leads U.S. women past Serbia, into hoops gold medal game

    Saitama, Japan — Soon after the U.S. women finished off Serbia to reach the Olympic gold medal game, members of the Japanese military honor guard started practicing for the medal ceremony.

    The U.S. already knows that drill.

    Brittney Griner had 15 points and 12 rebounds to help the Americans beat the Serbians, 79-59, on Friday to advance to title game.

    “This is exactly where we want to be,” said Breanna Stewart, who also had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. “Everything is on the line. We’re going to do what we can to make sure we come home with a gold.”

    The Americans are now one win away from a seventh consecutive gold medal, which would match the U.S. men’s team that won seven Olympic titles in a row from 1936-68.
