USA Olympic Women's Basketball 2012: 5 Most Important Players Going Forward

The USA women’s basketball team has been on a tear so far during the 2012 London Olympics.

They’ve played two games against Croatia and Angola and are yet to really be tested by either team.

During the first game, Croatia kept it semi-close throughout the first three quarters and was only down by six points entering the fourth. Team USA completely dominated the fourth quarter, however, and went on to finish the game with a 25-point victory.

Team USA played much better the second game. Versus Angola, the USA won every quarter by double-digits en route to a 90-38 victory. The most points they allowed in a single quarter that game was only 12.

The United States must stay strong, though, if they want to leave London with a gold medal, because the competition will only get stronger. They still have yet to play Australia, Russia or the Czech Republic, who are currently ranked two, three and four in the world, respectively.

Here are the most important players moving forward for Team USA to ensure they win a gold medal.
