A full-game replay provided by FIBA. Chants of “U of A! U of A! U of A!” were heard when Johnson was announced as the MVP. Last season, former Arizona Wildcats forward Aaron Gordon was named MVP of the FIBA World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic. Billy Donovan was also the head coach for that team. Sean Miller was part of Donovan’s staff this summer.

More celebrations with Miller and Johnson to come?

To be named MVP with amount of talent Team USA has is quite an achievement for Johnson.
