Tests await USA Basketball in both men’s and women’s play on Sunday.

USA women vs. China – 11:15 a.m. EDT

USA men vs. France -- 1:15 p.m. EDT

The men are coming off a pair of tight games, and get a loaded France team that could present a lot of problems with its athleticism. Look for Nicolas Batum of the Charlotte Hornets and Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs to work their fluid offense against powerful Team USA.
