Carmelo Anthony became the all-time leading scorer in United States mens Olympic basketball history on Wednesday night, passing LeBron James?in the teams 98-88 win against Australia. Air Max Norge .?Anthony passed James mark of 273 points. He opened the game by making three 3-pointers and then moved past James, his close friend, with another 3 from the left wing with 1:08 left in the first quarter.David Robinson (270) and Michael Jordan (256) are third and fourth on the all-time U.S. list, respectively.Anthony totaled 14 points in the opening quarter and finished with a game-high 31. He has 293 points in his Olympic career.Brazils Oscar Schmidt holds the all-time record of 1,093,?but unlike Anthony, he didnt have his minutes restricted while playing on powerhouse teams.Of course I was conscious of it, Anthony said of the scoring mark. My teammates was making sure I was aware of the situation, but tonight was one of those nights where I wanted to let the game come to me and take the shots that was given to me, take the open shots and kind of play basketball.And at the end of the day I was in my zone. I was playing basketball.Anthony knocked down nine 3-pointers, one shy of his U.S. record, and finished 11-of-21 from the field. He added eight rebounds and two steals and might have saved the Americans from a loss by scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter.Carmelo was magnificent, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski said.Anthony is the first U.S. mens basketball player to compete in four Olympics and has a chance to become the first mens basketball player to win three Olympic gold medals.A 13-year NBA veteran who has starred for the?New York Knicks the past six seasons, Anthony won gold with the U.S. in 2008 and 12. He also won a bronze medal in 04.He was wanting that moment, teammate Paul George said after the Americans escaped an upset. He was special tonight. We joke about it, this being his farewell tour.Anthony, 32, chose to play with the U.S. team in a summer in which close friends James, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade either passed on the chance to play or were sidelined by injury. During an interview with ESPN that aired earlier this week, he explained why he decided to play in Rio.I enjoy it, I enjoy it, Anthony said. I like it. I enjoy learning about different players personalities, not just as basketball players, but as people. I feel like Im that bridge, that gap, between the veterans and the young guys.Anthonys Olympic odyssey began with a disappointing performance in Athens, where the Americans staggered to a bronze medal and worldwide embarrassment. But hes been a major part of the U.S. programs resurgence.His leadership has really blossomed big time, said Jerry Colangelo, USA Basketballs director. I would say if Carmelo played on any team long enough he would be the leading scorer. Thats the kind of scorer that he is.In addition to holding the U.S. mens all-time scoring mark, Anthony has also played in a record 26 Olympic games. He trails Robinson by 31 rebounds for the all-time lead and trails Jordan by 20 field goals for the all-time field goal attempts mark.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Air Max Billig . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. Air Max Salg . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. . The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. (STATS) -- Nearing the halfway point of the conference slate, Southern Utah is in the mix to defend its Big Sky title. Slightly concerning, however, is its league wins have come at home over a pair of struggling programs while it was blown out on the road in its only matchup with a STATS Top 25 team.The Thunderbirds again find themselves on the road against a ranked team Saturday when they face No. 22 North Dakota, which is looking to win five straight games for the first time since moving to Division I in 2008.A defense led by NFL-bound James Cowser, Miles Killebrew and LeShaun Sims carried Southern Utah to its first Big Sky title a year ago. The Thunderbirds offense was no slouch, either, averaging 35.4 points and 445 yards. This season, under first-year coach Demario Warren -- the defensive coordinator from the past two seasons -- the defense is again leading the way but the offense has been a major liability.Southern Utah (3-2, 2-1) is last in the Big Sky in yards (338.8 per game) and second-to-last in scoring (23.4), and behind JUCO-transfer QB Patrick Tyler, the offense just isnt able to find any rhythm or sustain long drives. It is converting 24.6 percent of its third downs, ninth-worst out of the 125 FCS schools, and its average of 25:20 in time of possession is fifth-worst.Tyler, who is completing 54.3 percent of his passes, is averaging 195 passing yards in four starts -- a pretty substantial dropoff in production from a year ago when Ammon Olsen averaged 278.7 yards passing.We feel confident that Patrick is the guy that can help us win games, Warren said.The run game, however, is still thriving behind senior Malik Brown, who is second in the Big Sky in rushing (540 yards) and average (6.3 per attempt) among those with at least 50 carries.Brown and the rest of the offense, however, didnt get much going against overmatched UC Davis last weekend. The Thunderbirds gained 260 yards -- their fewest in a conference game since 2013 -- but scored TDs on both first-half trips inside the red zone and didnt turn the ball over in 24-3 winOur offense did their part in those areas and there are some other areas we want to improve at for sure, Warren said. But as long as were great at situational football, well give ourselves a chance to win at the end of the game.The Thunderbirds twwo Big Sky victories have come against teams that are a combined 3-9 while their conference loss came at then-No. Kjøpe Air Max. 11 Montana on Oct. 1.Southern Utahs scuffling offense will face its greatest test of the season when it visits the Alerus Center, where the Fighting Hawks (4-2, 3-0) have won four in a row and are 10-3 under coach Bubba Schweigert.North Dakota, which defeated then-No. 16 Cal Poly in its last home game on Oct. 1, is 3-0 in conference play for the first time since joining the Big Sky in 2012 and coming off its most emphatic victory of the season. The Fighting Hawks racked up 625 yards, including 422 on the ground, while holding Sacramento State to 272 in a 40-7 win -- the programs largest margin of victory against a Big Sky foe.All five of UNDs touchdowns came on the ground and the team had three 100-yard rushers, with Brady Oliveira gaining 111, Austin Gordon at 102 and quarterback Keaton Studsrud with 100. John Santiago, named to the 2015 STATS All-American second team, was cleared to play just before kickoff after injuring his leg on the games second play against Cal Poly, and ran for 76 yards on just eight attempts.The Fighting Hawks are third in the league in rushing, averaging 216 yards, and are just as strong against the run. They rank second in the Big Sky, allowing an average of 125.3 yards and 3.3 per rush.I really like the plan our defensive staff puts together. Our guys understand the plan and weve been able to limit big plays, Schweigert said. A big key to our defensive effort has been our offense being able to control the football and thats really helped us.Powered by its stellar ground game, North Dakota leads the Big Sky in time of possession at 32:54.With Santiago a little banged-up, Oliveira has stepped up, totaling 409 yards rushing with a 6.8 yard average in the last three games. Oliveira ranks sixth in the league in rushing yards per game at 84.8 and Santiago is eighth at 73.8, giving the Fighting Hawks the only pair of teammates in the Big Sky that are in the top 10.Weve been pleased with our tailbacks, Schweigert said. The big challenge for us is how do we get them into space and get them some room to run.
