The best women’s basketball players on Earth are heading down under for the 2022 FIBA Women’s World Cup in Sydney, Australia.

Team Canada enters the tournament as the No. 4 team in the world but is looking for a better result after failing to advance past the group stage at the Tokyo Olympics. At the last World Cup back in 2018, the United States won gold, Australia silver and Spain bronze. Canada lost to Spain in the quarterfinals and finished seventh after playing two seeding games.

The United States are three-time defending champions and have won gold in five of the past six World Cups.

The 12-team tournament features two groups of six, with each team playing five games in the Group Phase. The top four teams in each group will advance to the quarterfinals, where each of the top two seeds will be randomly drawn to play against one of the teams that finish in third or fourth. A bracket will then determine the semifinal and medal round matchups based on the quarterfinal pairings.
