for a team that has lost only
one game in Olympic history

for charging Scott May under
the basket. Ford's two free
throws iced it.
"I never had a doubt about
it. I was confident all the way,'
said Buckner, who hit two criti-
cal shots in the comeback. I
had the shots and I had to take
them. But he admitted that the
U.S. effort was not up to par.
"We like to think our best
games are yet to come. We
learned one thing-we can play
better defense."
The American women's bas-
ketball team kept its medal
hopes alive with a 95-79 victory
