<VIDEO>      LONDON (AP) - The U.S. men's Olympic basketball team stayed undefeated in record-setting fashion, getting 37 points from Carmelo Anthony and breaking the Olympic mark for points in a game in a 156-73 rout of Nigeria on Thursday night.
     Anthony was 10 of 12 on 3-pointers in surpassing the 31 points scored by Stephon Marbury in 2004. The Americans finished 29 of 46 behind the arc, easily surpassing the 13 3-pointers they made in the 2008 gold-medal game.
     Russell Westbrook added 21 points in an awesome performance that saw the Americans make 11 3-pointers in the first quarter, and they were only getting started.
     Ike Diogu had 27 points for Nigeria. The Nigerians had said they weren't intimidated by the Americans, who seem to be sending a message to the rest of the teams in the tournament that they as good as advertised.
