The United States male 3×3 basketball team will not feature at this year’s Olympics.
The 3×3 street basketball will debut at the Olympics this summer, and for the first time in history the United States will not be represented in the men’s side at the Olympics.
The team were eliminated by Netherlands in the quarterfinals of the men’s Olympics qualifying tournament on Sunday, failing to make the three available sports for the tournament.
However, the U.S. will be represented on the women’s side after the group of top WNBA talent defeated Spain in the semifinals.
Latvia and Poland joined the Netherlands in qualifying. Japan, China, the Russia Olympic Committee and Serbia have already clinched their tickets on the men’s side in the eight-nation event.
