LONDON, England – Former CSU standout Becky Hammon and the Russian Olympic team fell to France, 81-64, in the semifinals Thursday, and will play for the bronze medal vs. Australia Saturday at 10 a.m. MDT.

Hammon, a South Dakota native, is now in her second Olympic Games with Russia, led the team with 13 points, tying her teammate Alena Danilochkina. Hammon also led the team to a bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Games. This will be Russia’s third consecutive bronze medal, should they win on Saturday.

France got off to a quick start over Russia with a 10-1 run that they wouldn’t relinquish. After falling down by 14, Hammon led a Russian rally to bring it to within two early in the third quarter. The Russian team could not overtake the French however; who secured their victory in the last stanza.

Edwige Lawson-Wade led France tallying 18 points, while Emilie Gomis added 15. This is the French team’s second Olympic Games.

Hammon became a naturalized citizen before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. She is eligible to compete for Russia because she has not played for the United States in any major International Basketball Federation-sanctioned international events.
