Keyshawn Davis looked to become the first U.S. boxer to win gold since 2004.

U.S. Boxer Davis Takes Silver in Men's Lightweight

American boxer Keyshawn Davis took silver after falling to Cuban boxer Andy Cruz 4-1 in the men's lightweight gold medal match on Saturday.

Davis' run to the match included a knockout of No. 1 seed Sofaine Oumiha of France in the preliminary round and a win over Hovhannes Bachkov of Armenia in the semifinal match. 

Boxer Richard Torrez Jr. earned silver after falling to Uzbekistan's Bakhodir Jalolov 5-0 in the super heavyweight gold medal bout.

Torrez had a chance to win the first U.S. gold medal for Team USA since Andre Ward won silver in Athens in 2004 and be Team USA's first super heavyweight champ since 1984.

U.S. women’s basketball advanced to the gold medal game after defeating Serbia 79-59.

Team USA Women's Basketball Secures 7th Straight Gold Medal, Defeating Japan

The U.S. women’s basketball team won its seventh straight gold medal on Saturday night, matching a record set by the U.S. men between 1936 and 1968. The final score over Japan was 90-75.

Brittney Griner took over the game much the way Kevin Durant did for the U.S. men on Friday night. She had 30 points on 14-of-18 shooting. A’ja Wilson, winning a gold medal on her 25th birthday, added 19 points, while Breanna Stewart had a double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds.

Even on a team with many Olympic veterans, six of the players were not alive the last time the U.S. didn’t win gold, when they took home bronze from Barcelona in 1992. Meanwhile, Team USA’s most experienced players, Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi, made history by becoming the first Olympic basketball players – male or female – to win five gold medals.

“It’s 20 years of sacrifice, putting everything aside and just wanting to win,” said Taurasi after the game. “This group found a way to win.”

“It’s not just about us,” Bird said, referencing all of the players who contributed to the U.S. streak.

A spike by Jordan Larson gave the U.S. women's volleyball team its first ever gold medal.

Team USA defeated Brazil in straight sets, winning 25-21, 25-20, 25-14 to take gold.

Andrea Drews had a team-high 15 points, Michelle Bartsch-Hackley added 14 and Larson finished with 12.

The win also put the United States in front of China in the gold medal count at the Tokyo Olympics, giving the U.S. 39 to China's 38.
