Its not exactly a new title and it probably cant be maintained for too long, but its something so unique, prestigious and historic that I feel tremendously proud of everyone who ... contributed to it, Spain coach Sergio Scariolo tweeted Friday.

FIBAs rankings underwent a change in 2017 and now take the results from the most recent eight years into consideration.

The adjustments mean Team USA can no longer live off things such as the 2014 World Cup championship, but more recent successes, such as the gold medal won in the2020 Olympicsin Tokyo, still factor into the rankings.

The U.S. finished seventh at the 2019World Cup.
