Check out some of the people and organizations USA Basketball is following with this week’s USA Basketball Social Roundup:


Dawn Staley, a gold medalist as both player and coach with USA Basketball, expresses the sentiment of many on this Veterans Day.

   Anthony Davis, who was with the USA Men’s National Team when it toured West Point as part of USA Basketball’s Hoops For Troops program back in August, continues to help the cause in his role with the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans.

--- Some coaching wisdom from 2014 USA Women’s World Championship Team assistant coach Doug Bruno.

--- Kayla McBride, who is a member of the 2014-16 Women’s National Team, often tweets support for her alma mater, Notre Dame. But now that her little sister, Karlee McBride, has begun her sophomore season playing for the University of Indiana, expect more Hoosier updates.

--- It’s clear that the start of basketball season brings a smile to the face of Destinee Walker, who won her first gold medal with the USA Basketball U18 National Team this summer at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship. Of course, basketball isn’t the only thing that makes her smile. Not long before this post, Walker tweeted that “Krispy Kreme donuts are the best.”


--- This is a big week for many high school basketball players, as it’s the start of the early signing period for 2015 college basketball recruits. One such player is Asia Durr, who has helped USA Basketball win gold each of the past two summers – she was part of the 2014 USA U17 World Championship Team, and tournament MVP for the team that won the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championship. Durr, from Douglasville, Georgia, has already verbally committed to the University of Louisville.

--- Last June, Billy Donovan led the 2014 USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team to a gold medal at the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship. Donovan is about to begin his 19th season as head coach at the University of Florida, and it appears from this Tweet that his players will be wearing stylish sneakers.
