Jackson Sets Women's Olympic Scoring Record

LONDON (AP) Lauren Jackson became the all-time Olympic scoring leader in women's basketball and Australia beat China 75-60 on Tuesday, setting up a semifinal showdown against the United States.

Jackson, who finished with 12 points, hit a jumper with 3:46 remaining in the game that gave her 536 points -- one more than former Brazil star Janeth Arcain.

The four-time Olympian's record-breaking basket gave Australia a comfortable 13-point lead. Liz Cambage scored 17 points for the Australians.

Australia and the United States have met in three straight Olympic finals, with the Americans winning the gold each time. Australia failed to win its group and will now have to play the favored Americans one round earlier.

The teams met in the semifinals at the 1996 Atlanta Games, where the U.S. won the first of its four consecutive gold medals.

Ma Zengyu led China with 15 points.
