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

University of Florida head coach Billy Donovan notched his 500th career NCAA victory Saturday night, as noted here by former UF player and current Atlanta Hawk Al Horford, as well as Donovan himself. Donovan, who led the 2014 USA Men’s U18 National Team to a gold medal at the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship and is 19-0 as a USA Basketball head coach, is the second fastest men's Division I coach to reach 500 victories.
