2012 Summer Olympics: Preview, Medal Count For Friday

Basketball semifinals will be the headliners on Friday as the Olympics move into their 14th day. Team USA will face Argentina at 4:00 p.m. ET after watching Spain and Russia duke it out for the other finals spot at noon. Lots more events will meet their ends on Friday as well, with medals to be given out in soccer, track and others.

After spending the whole tournament flip-flopping with China for the first spot in the medal count race, the United States has built up a comfortable lead with 90 medals to China's 80 going into Friday. With the number of events that are giving out medals per day starting to dwindle, it looks like it might be the United States' race to lose. A full, updated medal count can be found here.

As per usual, you can see most Olympic events live as they happen on NBColympics.com, provided you are allowed to view their streams considering their specific specifications. Many events will also be appearing, albeit on tape delay, on the NBC family of channels all day.
