Team USA Basketball: James Harden, Andre Iguodala Contribute In Blowout Win Over Great Britain

Team USA basketball had an easy time with Great Britain on Thursday, blowing them out by a score of 118-78. It was a welcome win for the team after a near-scare against Brazil earlier in the week, and they were led by the scoring efforts of Carmelo Anthony (19), LeBron James (16), Russell Westbrook (15) and Deron Williams (19).

Andre Iguodala, a former standout with the Arizona Wildcats during his college days, continued to be a great asset off the bench despite not scoring much. In a little more than 17 minutes of play, Iguodala scored two points, brought down six rebounds and dished out six assists. James Harden, a former Arizona St. Sun Devil, scored nine and recorded three assists in just over 11 minutes on the court.

Team USA will continue their preparations for the 2012 Olympics with two more exhibition games before arriving in London.
