USA Basketball’s U19 team ended the FIBA World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic, with a 9-0 record and a gold medal after completing an 82-68 win over Serbia on Sunday.

Florida head coach Billy Donovan and Florida sophomore guard Michael Frazier both earned gold medals. Frazier didn’t score in Sunday’s game but did provide six rebounds off the bench. He ended the championships averaging 6.7 points and 3.1 rebounds for the USA while playing in all nine games, including one start in the quarterfinal win over Canada.

Including last year’s 5-0, gold medal winning performance at the FIBA U18 Americas, Donovan now has a 14-0 record in international competition with two gold medals.

The Florida basketball program was also represented with the USA Basketball team by trainer Duke Werner, assistant to the head coach Mark Daigneault and walk-on Billy Donovan, who was a team manager. Former Florida assistant coach and current VCU head coach Shaka Smart was an assistant coach on the staff.
