  InterBasket > Player Profiles > Dawn Staley, Usa Dawn Staley was part of the great 1996 Olympic Women's Basketball Team that was composed of Olympic and professional greats and superstar college players.  The team began traveling and competing in late 1995 to prepare for the 1996 Olympics. They arrived in Atlanta in July of 1996 undefeated with a 52-0 record. Each of their Olympic contests sold out and the team rewarded the home crowd with an array of offensive talent.  In the eight victories en route to the gold medal, the United States averaged 102.4 points per game as Teresa Edwards, Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Katrina McClain, and Ruthie Bolton started all eight games - a team that also included Jennifer Azzi, Carla McGhee, Venus Lacy, Rebecca Lobo, Nikki McCray, and Katy Steding.
