Aussies in gold-medal game for 3rd year in row

Aussies in gold-medal game for 3rd year in row

Belinda Snell has scored 16 points to help Australia beat host China 90-56 Thursday night and reach the Olympic gold medal game for the third straight time.
Lauren Jackson adds 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Australians, who were without Penny Taylor. The team's third-leading scorer is sidelined with a sprained ankle suffered in the quarterfinal win over the Czech Republic. It's unclear whether she will be ready to face the United States in Saturday's final game.
Australia has lost to the Americans in the medal round of the past three Olympics, taking home silver in the past two games.
Bian Lan scores 20 points for China, which faces Russia for the bronze medal Saturday.
