Olympic Update: Team USA Men’s Basketball Exhibition Schedule Released
The five-game slate was released by USA Basketball on Monday and was subsequently picked up by several online and broadcast media outlets, mostly from Twitter.
Exact tip times and TV information will be released when we get closer to these dates:
- Friday, July 22 vs. Argentina at Mandalay Bay Arena, Las Vegas
- Sunday, July 24 vs. China at Staples Center, Los Angeles
- Tuesday, July 26 also vs. China at Oracle Arena, Oakland
- Friday, July 29 vs. Venezuela at United Center, Chicago
- Monday, August 1 vs. Nigeria at Toyota Center, Houston
Since Team USA easily won gold during the London 2012 Olympics, they earned an automatic bye along with the host nation of Brazil. The rest of the key countries will be decided in tournaments on each continent starting in June. I will try my best to keep all of my followers and fans up to date as we get closer.
