The USA Basketball Women's National Team,[2] commonly known as the United States Women's National Basketball Team, is governed by USA Basketball and competes in FIBA Americas. The team is by far the most successful in international women's basketball, winning eight out of ten Olympic tournaments it had entered. It also won eight of the last eleven World Cups (including the last three), and ten titles overall. The team is currently ranked first in the FIBA World Rankings.

In 2016, it was named the USA Basketball Team of the Year for a record sixth time (having been previously honored in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012). It was also named the USOC Team of the Year in 1996.[3]

The team is one of the most dominant in all Olympic sports, with a 66-3 record in Olympic play (no Olympic losses since 1992, none since 2006), and a record six consecutive titles. Should they win their seventh championship in a row in 2020, they will tie the US men's basketball team (1936-1968, their winning streak) for the most consecutive Olympic team victories in all Olympic sports, men or women.[4]
