Yao's Been Schooled!

Let's hear it for the USA basketball team!!! What an awesome start to the fight for gold! Team USA basketball beat Yao Ming's Team China in Beijing on Sunday.

The final score was 101-70. The US team's highest scorer was the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade with 19 points.

Superstar LeBron James contributed 18. In 2004, Team USA was humbled when its star-studded NBA roster lost three times and settled for Athens bronze..This year's crew considers themselves the "Redeem Team".

USA! USA! Bring home the gold, boys.
