FILE- In this Aug. 8, 2016, file photo, Ibtihaj Muhammad, from United States, waits for match against Olena Kravatska from Ukraine, in the women's saber individual fencing event at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Members of basketball's international governing body are expected to vote to eliminate a rule that bans religious headgear during competition.
