Select USA Basketball Men’s and Women’s Games Featured on NBCSN and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA

Heading into this summer’s Tokyo Olympics on the networks of NBCUniversal, NBC Sports will present USA Basketball’s Men’s and Women’s National Team exhibition games on NBCSN and Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA.  In all, NBC Sports will present five men’s games and two women’s games, beginning with the USA Basketball men’s game vs. Nigeria on Saturday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

 “USA Basketball is synonymous with Olympic greatness,” said Jon Miller, NBC Sports. “Whether it is the women’s team going for a historic seventh consecutive gold medal in Tokyo or the men competing to win a 16th overall, basketball is one of the Games’ most exciting and popular sports. This year, viewers will have access to more pre-Games competition than ever before, with numerous star-studded exhibition games.”

“USA Basketball is thrilled to partner with NBC Sports in showcasing its talented men’s and women’s teams ahead of the Tokyo Olympics,” said Jim Tooley, USA Basketball CEO. “These exhibitions will help prepare our teams for the elite  competition that will exist at the Olympic Games and fans of USA Basketball and basketball in general will have the opportunity to not only witness some of America’s best athletes play, but they will also have the opportunity to see many of the best players from around the world compete in these games.”

On the men’s side, USA Basketball has named its 12-member roster for the Tokyo Olympics, as they look to win a fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal. The team is comprised of Kevin Durant, who will make his third Olympic appearance; now two-time Olympians Draymond Green and Kevin Love; as well as first-time Olympians Bam Adebayo, Bradley Beal, Devin Booker, Jerami Grant, Jrue Holiday, Zach LaVine, Damian Lillard, Khris Middleton, and Jayson Tatum. The USA National Team coaching staff is led by long-time San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, who has won five NBA Championship titles.

USA Basketball’s Women’s National Team owns 15 Olympic and 19 World Cup gold medals. Headlining the 12-member team are USA Basketball veterans and now five-time Olympians Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, and four-time Olympian Sylvia Fowles. The squad also features Ariel Atkins, Tina Charles, Napheesa Collier, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Chelsea Gray, Brittney Griner, Jewell Loyd, Breanna Stewart, and A’ja Wilson. The dominant women of USA Basketball are in pursuit of a seventh-straight Olympic gold medal, and have won their last 49 Olympic games, dating back to 1992. The USA National Team head coach is Dawn Staley, who recently led her University of South Carolina team to the 2021 NCAA Final Four and won five Olympic gold medals overall: three as an athlete (1996, 2000, 2004) and twice as an assistant coach (2008, 2016).
