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

One week after USA Basketball Men’s National Team head coach Mike Krzyzewski won his 1,000th college basketball game, USA Women’s National Team head coach Geno Auriemma reached a major milestone of his own. Auriemma, head coach at the University of Connecticut, became the fifth coach in women’s college basketball history to reach 900 wins Tuesday night when UConn defeated Cincinnati. While Auriemma does not allow his current players to tweet during the season, there was plenty of praise for him from former players – including USA Basketball gold medalists Maya Moore and Sue Bird.
