The USA is once again on top of the latest FIBA World Ranking.

Spain came into this year’s FIBA World Cup as the reigning champions and ranked number one in the world, but their underwhelming ninth place finish weighed heavy on them and allowed the USA to reclaim the first overall spot.

The Americans fared slightly better than Spain, finishing fourth in the field of 32, and their rather consistent performances over the past eight years–the time frame that is used for these rankings–were enough to move them up from second back to first.

Newly crowned world champion Germany moved up from 11th to third while Canada and Latvia also made significant leaps into the top 10. Canada saw an increase of nine spots to sixth overall and Latvia made the second largest jump among all countries, rising by 22 places to eighth.

South Sudan was the only team that gained more ground than Latvia as the African nation went from 63rd to 31st following a three-win World Cup. They are now the top ranked team in Africa followed by Cote d’Ivoire (33rd) and Angola (34th).

Back in the top 10, Australia and Serbia came in at fourth and fifth, respectively, in-between Germany and Canada.

Argentina (7th), France (9th), and Lithuania (10th) all saw a hit to their ranks, although they managed to remain in the top 10. Meanwhile, Slovenia, Italy, and Greece were not as fortunate. They all fell out of the top 10 following their so-so showings during the World Cup.

Two Asian teams in Japan and Lebanon made strides as well following their strong World Cup showings. Japan was the best performing Asian team in the World Cup with three wins which earned them an automatic berth to next year’s Paris Olympics and also bumped them up from 37th to 26th in the rankings. On the other hand, Lebanon went from 44th to 28th as they won both of their classification games.

The Philippines managed to move up slightly, going from 40th overall to 38th after taking one win–a 21-point blowout over China–during this recently concluded World Cup that was held on their home soil.

These latest rankings continued to show the overall dominance of European nations when it comes to international basketball. Among the top 30 teams, 16 of them are from Europe. The gap between Europe and the rest of the world is so significant that the 15th ranked team in the continent, Turkey (24th), is ahead of Asia’s third-best team Japan (26th).

The USA may have reclaimed the top perch for the meantime, but with the way that the international basketball landscape has been trending, it will not come as a surprise if they are once again dethroned come next year’s Olympics.

Germany, Canada, and Serbia are two rising powers who could challenge them for the top spot. Spain and Australia may have aging cores, yet these two countries have winning programs which means that they are unlikely to fade into the background anytime soon. The future of basketball is bright and these rankings further prove that football-esque parity is finally on the way.
