Team USA Vs. France: United States Opens 2012 Olympics On Sunday

Team USA is still a work in progress according to the team's coaching staff, but the good news is that they still have several more games to adjust to international competition. It also helps that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and company are undefeated through their "warm up" period as they head into medal contention in London for the 2012 Summer Olympic games. First up is France for the US national team.

"I think we've gotten better. I think we need to use pool play first of all to qualify for medal play but also I think to get five more international games under our belt. I thought we reacted better tonight than two nights ago to the international game and we have to keep learning about it," said USA coach Mike Krzyzewski.

The U.S. is 15-1 all-time in its first contest of the Olympic Games, with the lone loss in an opener coming to Puerto Rico at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. They face France on Sunday morning at 8:30am Central Time.
