Here Is The Complete Schedule For The 2020 Tokyo Olympics Women’s Basketball Tournament

Women’s basketball at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is set to begin on July 24. The 12 teams that qualified for the games have already been broken into three groups. Each team is guaranteed just three preliminary games against its group (one against each team).

After those three games, the top two teams in each group, plus the two best third-place teams will qualify for the final tournament phase. In the final phase, pairings are randomly drawn with the three first-place teams along with the best second-place team playing against the remaining teams. Teams from the same group can not play against each other in the quarterfinals. The competition is single-elimination with the winner having played a total of six games.
