    Background: The Soviet Union basketball team - fresh from defeating the United States in the Nations Cup in Colombia last week - were themselves roundly defeated by a United States college team last Tuesday(3 September).

    The Soviet team went down by 104 points to 77 in Los Angeles when they played a team made-up of the top U.S. college players.

    The basketball rivalry between the two countries has been intense since the 1972 Olympics when, for the first time, the USA lost the Gold Medal to the Soviet Union.

    Tuesday's defeat is a blow to the pride of both the Russian and the United States teams.

    Only four days before, the Russian team had beaten the United States by 101 to 87 in the World Championships in Bogota.
