1964 TOKYO OLYMPICS

Result: Gold medal

Key players: Jerry Shipp (12.4 PPG), Bill Bradley (10.1 PPG), Joe Caldwell (9 PPG)


The 1964 U.S. roster wasn’t nearly as loaded as the roster from four years earlier, but Shipp, Bradley and Caldwell still carried Team USA to a 9-0 record and a sixth straight gold medal.
