(Louisville, KY)

After drubbing Nigeria by 83 points on Thursday night,  the U.S. men's Olympic basketball squad survived a close contest against Lithuania, winning by only five points, 99 to 94 on Saturday in London.

Lebron James lifted the USA down the stretch, scoring 8 of his 20 points in the game's final four minutes.  Carmelo Anthony also tallied 20 points for the United States.

Former UK Wildcat star, Anthony Davis, did  not see action in what turned out to be the first major test for the U.S. in Olympic hoops  pool play.
