LONDON (AP) - Diana Taurasi's already impressive Olympic resume isn't finished.

The U.S. shooting guard has three gold medals and says she will be at the 2016 Rio Games looking to win a fourth.

Still, the 30-year-old Taurasi isn't ready to pencil herself into an all-time starting lineup of U.S. Olympic women's basketball players that would no doubt include four-time gold medalists Lisa Leslie and Teresa Edwards.

Others, though, say Taurasi belongs.

Taurasi averaged a team-high 12.4 points in the London Olympics to lead the U.S. to its fifth consecutive gold medal.

She finds a way to win no matter the stage. She won three straight national championships in college, has two WNBA crowns and several Euroleague titles.

Taurasi plans to add another gold in Rio.
