2014 USA Basketball Developmental National Team Notes
FIBA World Championship vs.
FIBA Americas Championship
What’s the difference between a FIBA Americas
Championship and a FIBA World Championship? It may
sound confusing at first, but they are definitely two very
different tournaments.
FIBA Americas is the basketball zone that
encorporates North, South and Central America and the
Caribbean. FIBA Americas competitions include teams
from the zone only and each FIBA Americas competition is
a qualifying tournament to earn a slot in the following year’s
FIBA World Championship. For example, the top four
finishers from last year’s FIBA Americas U16
Championship qualified to compete in the 2014 FIBA U17
World Championship.
The FIBA World Championships include countries that
qualify from the five FIBA zones: FIBA Africa, FIBA Americas, FIBA Asia, FIBA Europe and FIBA Oceania.
While a gold medalist at a FIBA Americas
Championship can claim to be the best in the Americas
zone, a FIBA World Championship gold medalist lays claim
to the top team on the planet.

A Little History
USA Basketball’s two prior U17 World Championship
Teams enjoyed great success.
2010 was the inaugural FIBA U17 World Championship
for Men. The USA captured gold with a perfect 8-0 record
and Bradley Beal was tabbed MVP of the tournament of
the biennial event.
In 2012 Jahlil Okafor earned MVP honors and was
joined on the all-tournament team by Justise Winslow as
the U.S. again rolled up a perfect 8-0 slate en route to gold.
The American men in 2010 owned a 34.9 points and an
even 13.0 rebounds per game margin over their foes, while
in 2012 the U.S. outscored opponents by a margin of
victory of 39.9 points per game and owned a 19.8 rebounds
per game margin.
Who Picks These Guys?
Chaired in a non-voting position by Sean Ford, the
USA Basketball men’s national team director, the 2013-14
USA Basketball Men’s Developmental National Team
Committee also includes National Federation of High
Schools (NFHS) appointees John Olive (Torrey Pines H.S.,
Calif.) and Herman Harried (Lake Clifton Campus H.S.,
Md.); Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) representatives Rich
Gray (St. Louis Eagles AAU, Mo.) and Boo Williams (Boo
Williams AAU, Va.); and athlete representatives Chauncey
Billups, a 2010 FIBA World Championship gold medalist
and a member of three USA Basketball teams, and Gerry
McNamara, who played on the 2005 USA World University
Games Team.
3x3 Opens Doors For Rising Int’l Stars
FIBA launched its 3x3 initiative with inaugural
competitions in 2010, and the game and its reputation are
quickly growing. Played on a half-court with a 12-second
shot clock, four players to a team and no coach, 3x3 is
fast-paced and challenging.
The first major 3x3 international tournament was part of
the 2010 Youth Olympic Games. The YOG featured
athletes age 17-and-under, and while the Games,
organized by the IOC, were based on an Olympic format –
a multi-sport event with teams from around the globe living
together in a village and competing in 26 different sports
(up to 28 for 2014) – there were several differences.
The major revision that stood out among basketball
aficionados was the fact that FIBA and the IOC organized
the basketball tournament in a 3x3 format. FIBA was
already looking ahead to requesting the IOC add 3x3 as a
basketball discipline in future Olympic Games, and it was
an immediate hit. Played outside in a festive atmosphere,
the basketball tournament quickly became a fan favorite.
FIBA now holds a 3x3 U18 World Championship
annually, with the 3x3 U18 Worlds being held as part of the
Youth Olympic Games every four years (2014, 2018, etc.).

2014 USA Basketball
Men’s Developmental
National Team
Coaching Staff Profiles
Don SHOWALTER
Head Coach: 2013-14 USA Developmental National Team
After winning four gold medals in as many summers at
the helm of the USA Basketball Men’s Developmental
National Team (DNT), Iowa City High School head coach
Don Showalter returned in 2013 to USA Basketball to head
up the USA juniors through 2014.
After taking on his third two-year assignment as the
head of the USA Basketball Developmental National Team,
Showalter picked up right where he left off -- by going
undefeated en route to gold at the 2013 FIBA Americas
U16 Championship.
Under Showalter’s guidance, the 2013 USA Men’s U16
National Team won its games by an average margin of 53.4
points per game on its way to a 5-0 record at the FIBA
Americas U16 Championship that was played in Uruguay.
The top-four finish also qualified the USA for this summer’s
2014 FIBA U17 World Championship.
In all, Showalter has guided USA junior teams over the
past five summers to a sterling 31-0 record and five-straight
gold medals, including the 2010 and 2012 FIBA U17 World
Championship golds and the 2009, 2011 and 2013 FIBA
Americas U16 Championship golds.
For his efforts, Showalter has earned at least a share
of five USA Basketball Developmental National Coach of
the Year honors (2009-13).
Further, Showalter was
honored by the U.S. Olympic
Committee as its 2012
Volunteer Coach of the Year.
Showalter built a dominate
team in 2012 and captured
gold at the FIBA U17 World
Championship despite losing
Jabari Parker for three games
and the inside force of Dakari
Johnson in the fourth game
due to injuries.
Prior to the 2010 Worlds,
Showalter and the USA
wrapped up a 1-1 mark in
exhibition play in Kaunus,
Lithuania, including a 95-82
loss to the Russian U18
National Team and a 92-79 win
over the Lithuanian U17
National Team. In 2012 he
took the USA U17 team to Las
Palmas, Canary Islands,
where he coached the squad
to a pair of exhibition victories,
including 108-72 over Latvia’s
U17 squad and 89-74 over
Australia’s U17 team.

In addition to winning
gold medals for the USA,
Showalter has returned to the
U.S. Olympic Training Center
in Colorado Springs,
Colorado., for five fall training
camps to help prepare the
USA Basketball Men’s
Development National Team
for future competitions.
Showalter was the USA
@dshow23
head coach in the 1998 Nike
Hoop Summit and for the
North Team in the 1998 USA Basketball Men’s Youth
Development Festival. He was the coordinator for a youth
clinic hosted by USA Basketball in New York in 2004, and
he served as chair of the USA Basketball Cadet and Youth
Committee (now the Developmental National Team
Committee) from 2001-08.
One of the nation’s most accomplished high school
coaches, Showalter completed his 40th year (1974 present) as a high school head coach in 2013-14.
In his 40 seasons, Showalter has compiled a 581-320
record (.645 winning
percentage) overall and won
16
district titles.
In 2012-13, he took the
reigns as head coach at Iowa
City High School. While the
boys basketball team won the
state title in 2008, it hasn’t
been among the state’s elite
since then. Showalter took the
challenge of rebuilding the

2013 FIBA AMERICAS U16 CHAMPIONSHIP FOR MEN
Maldonado, Uruguay
June 11-15, 2013
As the previous two USA Men’s U16 National Teams had
done, the 2013 USA Basketball Men’s U16 National Team rolled
to an unblemished 5-0 slate en route to the FIBA Americas U16
Championship gold medal. At the third installment of the
biennial tournament, the U.S. team of 16-and-unders scorched
all comers by a record-setting 53.4-point margin of victory
June 11-15 in Maldonado, Uruguay.
Knowing the previous USA teams’ history and wanting to
not only build upon that legacy but also create their own, the
2013 squad headed to Uruguay with two goals in mind: capture
gold and not lose a game in the process.
Running to a 10-0 lead against an undersized Mexican
squad, the U.S. had 29 assists on 56 field goals en route to a
130-31 victory to open the tournament. The 130 points was the
most any USA team had scored in a U16 championship and tied
Argentina’s 130-point output in 2011 for the overall tournament
high-water mark. All 12 players scored in the game, led by
Diamond Stone’s 20 points.
Next up was South American rival Argentina, but a 16-0
USA run to open the game quickly established no doubt as to
which team was stronger as the U.S. earned the 96-72 win
behind 21 points from Malik Newman. Unfortunately Harry
Giles suffered a left knee injury early in the game and was
sidelined for the rest of the tournament.
Meeting up against winless Bahamas in its third game, the
red, white and blue quickly established its dominance and rolled
to a 59-28 halftime lead before easing in for the 121-52 win.
Again all available players scored, led by 26 points on 11-of-13
shooting from Newman.
The USA faced Puerto Rico in the semis for the right to
advance to the gold medal game. Despite a sluggish first quarter,
which saw the North Americans trail for the first time in four
games, the U.S., behind 19 points apiece from Ivan Rabb and
Stone, earned a convincing 93-64 victory over the islanders to
set up a rematch with Argentina for the gold.
Behind a decimating 28-7 second quarter, the USA
accomplished exactly what it set out to do, vanquished all
comers, and beat Argentina 94-48 in the championship game to
remain undefeated, en route to collecting gold at the 2013 FIBA
Americas U16 Championship. All 11 players put up points, and
this time it was Josh Jackson who led with 16.
Newman, who averaged team-highs of 16.2 points and 2.8
steals a game, was named tournament MVP.
Canada collected its third-straight U16 bronze medal after
defeating Puerto Rico 93-64.

2012 FIBA U17 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FOR MEN
Kaunas, Lithuania
June 29 - July 8, 2012
USA head coach Don Showalter and his assistants Mike
Jones and Rich Gray piloted a talented squad to an undefeated
8-0 slate en route to defending the USA’s gold medal at the 2012
FIBA U17 World Championship in Kaunas, Lithuania.
The U.S., which banded together and outscored teams by
39.9 points a game, despite losing Jabari Parker for three games
due to a sore foot and inside force of Dakari Johnson in the
fourth game with a groin pull.
The Americans’ closest contest of the tournament came in
its opener on June 29, an 89-67 victory in which the U.S. led
wire-to-wire. Stephen Domingo hit 5-of-8 from 3-point and
finished with 17 points to lead five players in double digits.
Australia hung close and trailed 43-38 at 8:11 in the third. With
the U.S. up 46-40, the red, white and blue put the game away
with a 19-1 run and never looked back.
Behind double-doubles of 16 points and 12 rebounds from
Dakari Johnson and 10 points and 14 rebounds from Jahlil
Okafor, the U.S. put away the Czech Republic 95-57 on June 30.
The U.S. triumphed over Egypt 111-73 on July 1, behind 18
points apiece from Conner Frankamp and Parker.
Utilizing a full-court pressure defense from the opening tip,
the U.S. blew past France 86-50 on July 3. Stanley Johnson had
a double-double of 12 points and 10 boards and Okafor posted
game-highs of 21 points and 13 rebounds.
Closing preliminary round play on the Fourth of July, the
U.S. wasted no time in celebrating with a 116-47 win over
China. Frankamp was the game’s top scorer with 17 points,
while Tyus Jones scored seven points and dished out 11 assists.
Jones and Justise Winslow combined for 39 points, 16
rebounds and eight assists to lead the USA past Canada 113-59
in the July 6 quarterfinal game. Jones contributed game-bests of
22 points and six assists, while Winslow notched 17 points and
13 rebounds.
After holding a six-point lead at half, the U.S. pulled away
from Spain in the second half for an eventual 95-66 semifinal
victory. The USA earned its gold medal game berth with the help
of a powerful performance by Winslow, who finished the night
with 17 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.
Advancing to the gold medal game, the Americans found
themselves in a rematch against Australia, which had gone 6-0
following its opening loss to the U.S. Both teams had gotten
better and more cohesive throughout the tournament, but the
USA went to its obliterating defense, which was beyond a doubt
the best in the competition, and the result was a 95-62 gold
medal victory. Paced by 22 points from Frankamp, the U.S.
received 17 points from tournament MVP Okafor. He was joined
on the FIBA U17 World Championship All-Tournament Team by
Winslow, who finished the night with 13 points, 11 rebounds,
three assists and four steals.
Croatia defeated Spain 93-61 for the bronze medal.

2010 FIBA U17 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP FOR MEN
Hamburg, Germany
July 2-11, 2010
Returning nine members from the inaugural USA U16 Team
that captured gold at the 2009 FIBA Americas U16
Championship, USA Basketball’s first U17 World Championship
squad was clearly the class of the field as the American juniors
rolled in impressive and dominating fashion to an 8-0 record and
the U17 World Championship title.
In the USA debut, and in what turned out to be the closest
any opponent would stay with the powerful USA Team,
Argentina fell to the USA by 12 points, 82-70, as Michael
Gilchrist paced the U.S. effort with 24 points and 15 boards. The
following day the USA offense was sharp as the Americans
pounded Lithuania 102-66 as Brad Beal tossed in 16 points.
James McAdoo poured in 26 points, and guard Quinn Cook
handed out a game best 13 assists in the USA’s 113-73 rout of
China. The USA offense exploded in a 132-64 rout of Egypt as
Beal and Gilchrist each recorded 18 points. Closing out preliminary round play with a convincing 125-75 win over Serbia, Beal
scored 20 points, while McAdoo recorded 15 points, 13
rebounds, four blocked shots and four steals.
Facing Australia in the quarterfinals, the U.S. team effort
made it look easy as it rolled to a 105-70 win. Beal dumped in
25 points on a sizzling 7-of-9 shooting performance from behind
the 3-point arc, and McAdoo finished with 17 points on flawless
8-for-8 shooting and collected nine rebounds. Additionally, Tony
Wroten was credited with 11 points, seven assists and three
steals, Marquis Teague finished with 10 points and a game best
eight assists, and André Drummond had a productive evening
with a double-double of 10 points and a game best 12 boards in
only 14 minutes of action.
With Canada standing in the way of a advancing into the
gold medal game, Gilchrist was virtually unstoppable, recording
30 points and 15 rebounds as the USA downed Canada 103-83.
Meeting also undefeated Poland in the gold medal contest,
all 12 members of the USA Team scored and the Americans’
depth and team work again proved, as it had all tournament, too
much for its opponent and the U.S. ran to a 111-80 victory.
Leading 46-41 with 2:54 remaining before halftime, fueled by
points from four different USA players, the Americans closed
out the second quarter within 12 consecutive points to take a 5841 lead to the locker room at intermission. The U.S. was never
seriously threatened in the second half. McAdoo, Beal and
Gilchrist paced the U.S. scoring with 20 points, 19 points and 16
points, respectively.
Beal, who averaged a USA high 18.3 ppg. and made 47.7
percent of his 3-point tries, was selected MVP of the World
Championship, and teammate McAdoo, who averaged 15.0 ppg.
and 7.3 rpg., while shooting 65.6 percent from the floor, joined
Beal on the five member All-World Championship Team.
