5 former UConn stars go for gold today

The United States goes after its sixth straight gold medal and here are some UConn related things to look for.

If the U.S. beats Spain in the 2:30 p.m. gold-medal game, Breanna Stewart would become ninth UConn product to win a gold medal (and 10th medalist overall as Svetlana Abrosimova won a bronze with Russia in 2008).

Tina Charles and Maya Moore would join Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi as the only players to win multiple NCAA, World Championship and Olympic titles.

The game will air live on NBC.

Here's the breakdown. The number of World Championship titles in parenthesis since the U.S. did not win the title in 2006
