Takin' It to the Hoop, released in Japan as USA Pro Basketball (USAプロバスケットボール?), is a basketball game developed by Aicom for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16. It was originally published in Japan by Aicom in 1989, and then in North America by NEC Corporation in 1990. It features teams of five athletes. It uses cutaway scenes whenever a player dunks the ball, or performs a free throw. In these cutaways, the players look more realistic, in contrast to their cartoon look on the court.
The game features eight non-licensed American teams:
- HI AG (Midwest)
- New York
