Fiba has made a new ranking methodology to determine the national team rankings.

And here is the new ranking:

Spoiler: The USA is still 1st

The new system is rewarding teams for their most recent performances. This replaces the system in place under the previous ranking, where all games over the 8-year period received the exact same value.
Finally, the new ranking also recognizes the value of away wins and rewards facing and beating opponents that are higher in the ranking.

Every improvement is welcome!
