Duke Alumna Shannon Rowbury qualified for the 1,500 meter semifinals in the 2012 London Olympics. The 2007 graduate ran a time of 4:06.03 to finish seventh in the fastest heat of the evening and earn the right to race again on Wednesday, August 8.

Yet Hunter Kemper winning a medal isn't beyond the realm of possibility. A four-time Olympic triathlete, he has an established history of finishing higher in each Games: from 17th in Sydney, to 9th in Athens to 7th in Beijing.

The Americans (5-0) will play Australia (3-2) in a quarterfinal game Wednesday. LeBron James added 18 points, getting the Americans' first seven of the third quarter before Durant took over.

Argentina shot 56 percent in the first half and the U.S. led just 60-59.
