There’s a reason Angel McCoughtry has won four gold medals with USA Basketball, most recently at the 2014 FIBA Women’s World Championship. Even after winning the World Championship gold medal in October and then playing in Turkey in the EuroLeague, McCoughtry hasn’t stopped working as she prepares for the 2015 WNBA season.
Six-time USA Basketball gold medalist head coach Don Showalter will again lead the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s U16 National Team, which will gather in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in late May before heading to Argentina for the FIBA Americas U16 Championship. As this tweet indicates, Showalter was out of the country this week, too – working at a youth basketball clinic in Cuba.

@USABasketball was one of the many Twitter accounts to wish two-time Olympic gold medalist Candace Parker a happy birthday on April 19. Based on this tweet from Parker, we will hear back from her soon.
Thanks for all the love! I'm in a hotel in Russia and the internet is HORRIBLE. So I will get back to everybody when I get service 😘😘— Candace Parker (@Candace_Parker) April 19, 2015
