USA Basketball has kept its No. 1 spot in the FIBA world men's rankings, even after a disappointing seventh-place showing in the World Cup that ended earlier this week.
It's now nine-years-and-counting in the top spot for the U.S., which has held the No. 1 ranking since winning the 2010 world championship. World Cup champion Spain stayed No. 2, Australia leaped eight spots to No. 3, World Cup finalist Argentina rose one spot to No. 4 and World Cup bronze-medalist France fell two slots to No. 5.
