LAS VEGAS - So, the word is now official that Coach K, Mike Krzyzewski, will remain at the helm of the U.S. national team through the 2012 Olympics, which means he'll end up having coached the Team USA through four consecutive major international competitions.
That would give Coach K the longest tenure since coach Henry Iba guided the U.S. Olympic team to gold medals in 1964, 1968 and 1972.
But can you name the last U.S. coach to lead the Team USA program through consecutive major international competitions? (A hint: He once coached the Lakers.)
Good luck with that one, plus nine other brain-benders as we present a Team USA pop quiz to help pass the time through what will be a long FIBA-less summer for the Americans (Team USA will not be competing this summer, having already qualified for the 2010 World Championship in Turkey by winning the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics last year):
