The USA Basketball Women's National Team[1], 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 dominant in international women's basketball, winning eight out of ten Olympic tournaments it had entered. It also won seven of the last ten World Cups, and nine titles overall. The team is currently ranked first in the FIBA World Rankings.

Following the team's sixth consecutive Olympic victory, it was named USA Basketball Team of the Year for a record sixth time (having been previously named in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012). It was also named the USOC Team of the Year in 1996.[2]
