Florida head coach Billy Donovan led USA Basketball’s U19 team to a perfect 9-0 record at the FIBA World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic, capped by an 82-68 win over Serbia in the gold medal game on Sunday.
Though UF guard Michael Frazier II (Tampa, Fla.) did not score in the final, he contributed six rebounds off the bench. Throughout the course of the championships, Frazier averaged 6.7 points and 3.1 rebounds for the USA, playing in all nine games and starting one, the quarterfinal victory vs. Canada.
Following last summer’s 5-0 gold medal performance at the FIBA U18 Americas, Donovan now holds a 14-0 record in international competition and holds two gold medals.
Also representing UF with the USA Basketball team throughout the event were trainer Duke Werner, assistant to the head coach Mark Daigneault and walk-on Billy Donovan (Gainesville, Fla.), who served as team manager. Former Florida assistant coach and current VCU head coach Shaka Smart was an assistant coach.
