Florida coach Billy Donovan was named to coach the USA Basketball Men's 19-under team on Thursday for the FIBA 2013 World Championships.

The World Championships will take place June 17-July 7 in the Czech Republic. Last year, Donovan coached Team USA to a gold medal in the FIBA Americas 18-under world championships.

For the second straight year, VCU head coach Shaka Smart and Gonzaga head coach Mark Few will serve as Donovan's assistants.

“Anytime your country asks you to be a part of representing them, that's a pretty big undertaking,” Donovan said. “I'm excited about it and looking forward to it when it comes.”
