If you recall, last year Julius Randle went out of his way to say how much he enjoyed playing U18 USA Basketball for Billy Donovan, the team's head coach. The pair won a FIBA Americas championship together and helped Team USA qualify for this year's U19 world championship.

Well, this year Donovan returns to coach the U19 team along with VCU's Shaka Smart and Virginia's Tony Bennett. Like Randle last year when he was the only recruitable player on the roster, rising seniors Justise Winslow and Jahlil Okafor are set to try out for the squad.
