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

There were plenty of shout-outs on social media for USA Men’s National Team member Carmelo Anthony when he reached this milestone Sunday night, including this one from Hall of Famer Magic Johnson.

  Pokey Chatman has been head coach of the WNBA’s Chicago Sky since 2011. Before that, she helped win gold for USA Basketball – first as a player at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in 1988 and then as an assistant coach for the USA Women’s World University Games Team in 2005.

  The Hoops For Troops program is near and dear to USA Basketball, so it’s always great to see other organizations creating great events to help honor the men and women who defend our country.

  Last week we highlighted the #1More4Lauren story. Lauren Hill, diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, made her college basketball debut Sunday night for Mount St. Joseph University. Anyone who couldn’t be there in person sent well wishes through social media. And at halftime, Hill received the U.S. Basketball Writers Association's Pat Summitt Most Courageous Award, which was presented by Summitt.

  True to his word on Sunday, Tyus Battle did indeed trim his list of potential colleges to 11 on Monday.
