Team USA FIBA AmeriCup schedule: Dates, times, rosters & how to watch 2025 qualification games

The first window of qualifiers for the FIBA AmeriCup 2025 kicks off on Feb. 22, with Team USA set to clash with Cuba in the initial home-and-home matchup.

The Americans are set to embark on their journey towards what they hope will be an eighth FIBA AmeriCup title. They are 6-0 all-time in qualifying games.

Longtime Boston Celtics assistant Jerome Allen will coach a team of 12 Americans, including 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams and former first-round picks like Elfrid Payton and Stanley Johnson.

It is a roster heavy on experience, as nine of the twelve players have played with USA Basketball before. Their first test comes on Feb. 22 on American soil, with the rematch occurring three days later in Cuba.
