Team USA Basketball: USA Vs. Spain, Game Time, TV Schedule

Team USA men's basketball will face its toughest test of its build up for the 2012 Olympic Games Tuesday, as Spain hosts USA in Barcelona in an exhibition game which begins at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The contest will be the last tune-up contest for Team USA, which will try and end its tour with a perfect 5-0 record.

The match-up is a rematch of the '08 Gold Medal Game, which featured USA defeating Spain 118-107. Overall, USA owns a 5-1 record since '92 against Spain in FIBA contests.

Entering the Olympics, Spain, which enters as the No. 2-ranked squad in the world and features NBAers Paul Gasol (Los Angeles Lakers), Marc Gasol (Memphis Grizzles) and Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder), is expected to be USA's toughest opponent.

USA will open Olympic play on Sunday against France at 7:30 p.m. ET.
