FIBA Women’s World Cup 2022: Team USA roster, schedule, games, how to watch, live stream

Another game, another easy win for Team USA at the FIBA ​​Women’s World Cup 2022. After an opening victory over Belgium, the Americans advanced to 2-0 in the tournament with a dominant 106-42 victory over Puerto Rico on Thursday. Unsurprisingly, this competition was never close, and the lopsided result offered plenty of playing time for the reserves. Shakira Austin led the way with 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Brionna Jones added 13 points, nine rebounds and four assists.

This was Team USA’s biggest win in the competition since 2014, when they beat Angola 119-44. The next event this year is China in the early hours of Saturday morning.

This edition of the World Cup takes place in Australia and runs from September 22 to October 1. 1. All games will be played in Sydney, although there are several venues in the city. There are 12 teams participating in the tournament and they are divided into two groups of six teams for the preliminary stage. The top four teams from each group will advance to the single-elimination knockout stage.

As a current and historic powerhouse in the sport, Team USA is once again the favorite to win the competition; the Americans have won a record 10 World Cup gold medals and are seeking a fourth consecutive title. In fact, Team USA hasn’t even lost a game in the competition since falling to Russia in the semifinals of the 2006 tournament.

Before all the action, here’s everything you need to know about Team USA:

knockout stage

ready

Team USA was waiting to release a final roster until the conclusion of the WNBA Finals. If the series had gone to a decisive Game 5, then the Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun players probably wouldn’t have been included. As it was, the Aces took care of business in four games, winning their first title.

Now, the list has been established, and regular season MVP and Defensive Player of the Year A’ja Wilson, Finals MVP Chelsea Gray, Kelsey Plum, historic triple-double Alyssa Thomas and Sixth Player of the Year Brionna Jones have made the cut It would have been fascinating to see the list had those Finals stars not been able to make it to Australia.

As it stands, this will already be a revamped national team. Stalwarts like Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Sylvia Fowles and Diana Taurasi have all come of age, Napheesa Collier is still recovering from her pregnancy, Skylar Diggins-Smith has taken a hiatus from basketball for personal reasons and Brittney Griner is still detained in Russia. .

Only five members of the 2020 Olympics gold medal-winning team are on this team: Ariel Atkins, Chelsea Gray, Jewell Loyd, Breanna Stewart and A’ja Wilson. Of course, the top two players in the world, the reigning Finals MVP and two other All-Stars are a good place to start any roster.
