The highlight of the Olympics is always the men’s basketball tournament. Basketball was first introduced as an Olympic sport in 1936, but it was not until 1992 that professional players were allowed to compete. The United States has won the gold medal in men’s basketball more times than any other country, with a total of 15 medals.
The format of the tournament has varied over the years, but currently, each team is allowed to have 12 players on its roster. Each game consists of two 20-minute halves, with a 12-minute break in between. The tournament starts with a round-robin group stage, in which each team plays every other team in its group. The top four teams from each group advance to the knockout stage, where they compete in a single-elimination tournament until there is only one team left standing.
The United States is currently grouped with Australia, France, and Serbia. Their first game is against Serbia on August 6th at 11:00 AM EDT.

The winner of each match advances to the next round, until there are only two teams remaining. These teams will then play each other in the gold medal match.
