NBC Sports and Olympic Channel combine to air seven U.S. men’s and women’s basketball exhibition games leading up to the Tokyo Olympics.

All of the games are in Las Vegas, where the teams will train before traveling to Japan.

The U.S. women’s roster, led by Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi and coached by Dawn Staley, looks to extend the program’s 49-game Olympic winning streak dating to 1992. A seventh consecutive Olympic title would tie the Olympic basketball record held by the U.S. men (1936-68).

The U.S. men, led by Kevin Durant and coached by Gregg Popovich, are looking for a fourth consecutive gold medal. The 12-man roster lacks many NBA superstars, but the 2016 team had fewer returning Olympians (two) and still earned a third consecutive gold medal.
