Viewing: National Team Women, Tina Charles

It’s an Olympic year – again! The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games are set to take place July 23-Aug. 8, 2021. With 2020 in the rearview, USA Basketball looks onward and upward in what it hopes to be a healthy, golden year for basketball. Here are marquee events on the USA Basketball 2021 calendar and notables to keep your eyes on: 

USA Basketball rang in the new year, which is full of promise and the long-awaited Tokyo Olympics, with this little teaser for our fans.

Tara VanDerveer, the 1996 U.S. Olympic gold-medal-winning head coach, became the winningest coach in women’s college basketball history on Dec. 15, 2020.

Sports Illustrated named five athletes as its combined 2020 Sportsperson of the Year, and NBA and WNBA championship MVPs LeBron James and Breanna Stewart were among the five for both on and off the field of play.

Tina Charles is 85-6 in USA Basketball games played, including a total of nine gold medals.

Arike Ogunbowale paced all scorers in EuroLeague play this week at a clip of 23.0 points per game. She and six other USA National Team members wrapped up the league's first hub of the season.

With Geno Auriemma on the sidelines, USA teams have won seven gold medals.

Brittney Griner has won three gold medals and compiled a 34-2 record in a USA Basketball jersey.

The dynamic duo of Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart were the one-two punch that helped lead the Seattle Storm to a fourth WNBA title – all four of which featured Bird.

Seimone Augustus has won seven gold medals with USA Basketball.
