The USA teams are competing in the Europe-America conference of the FIBA 3x3 U23 Nations League and will play again the next two days in Voiron, France, with stop five taking place on Aug. 3 and the sixth and final stop on Aug. 4.

The format for both the men’s and women’s teams each day includes two pools of three teams, and each team plays the two other squads in its pool. The No. 1 team from each pool plays in the title game.

Twenty-six national federations registered both a men’s and women’s 3x3 team for the 2021 FIBA U23 Nations League, with teams being allocated in five different conferences: Africa, Asia, Europe-America, Europe 1 and Europe 2.
