Russia beats U.S. in world semifinals

September 21, 2006

SAN PAULO, Brazil (AP) - Russia beat the two-time defending champion United States 75-68 in the semifinals of the women's world championships on Thursday night, snapping the American's 26-game winning streak in this event.

Russia took advantage of poor shooting and sloppy ball-handling by the U.S. to take a 58-38 lead after three quarters. The Americans closed to 73-68 with 45 seconds left, but after two missed free throws by Oxana Rakhmatulina with 30 seconds to go, the U.S. took up almost all of the 24-second shot clock and Candace Parker missed a layup with 12 seconds left.

Ilona Korstin made two free throws with 10 seconds to go and Russia (5-3) advanced to Saturday's gold medal game against Australia (8-0), which beat Brazil 88-76 in the other semifinal.

The U.S. men lost 101-95 to Greece in the semifinals of the world championships last month and won the bronze medal.

The United States last loss in the world championships was to Brazil 110-107, in the semifinals in 1994. The U.S. had won 51 straight games in the world championships and Olympics dating to that loss.

The U.S. (7-1) beat Russia 90-80 in the first round. The United States entered the tournament ranked No. 1 by FIBA, while Russia was No. 2.

Fellas this should be coming as to no surprise to ANYONE...

Basketball as in whole is coming strong in Europe and has been for about 5yrs.. It won't be too long before we see our men and others kick serious ass vs the US Basketabll team no-matter if they are the men side or the women side...

BRAVO RUSSIANS (KOUKLES) ;)
