Team USA basketball is off to a rough start in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Team USA’s 83-76 loss to France marks their first loss since 2004 in the Olympics. It is the first time that Team USA basketball has ever lost to France in Olympic play. The US was 6-0 leading into their matchup. The loss to France doesn’t end Team USA’s chances at winning a gold medal, but it definitely makes it tougher. 12 teams are split into 3 groups. Each team plays the other 3 teams in their group for a total of 3 games. The teams that finish 1st and 2nd from each group advance to the quarterfinals along with two best 3rd place teams overall. The next few games for the Team USA are that much more important so they can advance to the quarterfinals.
