Margin of Victory: 42.4
The 1960 team continued the dominance displayed by the 1956 team and, until 1992, were considered to be the greatest Olympic basketball team ever assembled. Ten of the 12 players went on to play in the NBA and four of those players are Hall of Famers. Five players averaged double-figures and they blew teams out of the water with a 42-point margin of victory. They scored over 100 points in four straight games before their much anticipated meeting against the Soviets in the semifinals. The hype amounted to nothing as the US beat the USSR easily, 81-57. They went on to win their next two games with even more ease and won gold yet again. Jerry Lucas and Oscar Robertson each averaged 17 a game with a young Jerry West helping out with 13.
