Team USA vs. Tunisia: 7 Lessons Learned from America's Blowout Win in Olympics

Another day, another blowout win for Team USA at the 2012 London Olympics.

This time, the Americans came up with a 110-63 throttling of Tunisia, the Olympic debutantes who ended Angola's streak of Summer Games appearances after taking first at the FIBA Africa Championship.

The story of the game, though, goes well beyond an impressive final score. USA Basketball's latest effort was a mixed bag of three-pointers made and missed, dunks slammed home and conceded and uneven energy across the roster.

Mike Krzyzewski's squad is still the favorite to take home the gold, as well it should be, but clearly remains a work-in-progress. The American men will look to move to 3-0 against Nigeria on Thursday before finishing up play in Group A against international powers Lithuania and Argentina.

In the meantime, let's have a look at some of the takeaways from Team USA's second trouncing of the 30th Olympiad.
