Jerry Colangelo back in charge of Team USA basketball

Basketball

Jerry Colangelo was re-elected Tuesday to a second term as chairman of USA Basketball after overseeing a program that has dominated under his guidance. Colangelo started as USA Basketball managing director in 2005 before being elected to his first term as chairman. The US men and women won gold in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, and 2010 world basketball championships, and both programs are ranked No. 1 in the world. Men’s coach Mike Krzyzewski of Duke and women’s coach Geno Auriemma of UConn have said they don’t plan to return . . . Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Chase Budinger will miss 3-4 months while recovering from surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery three days after Budinger was injured in a game against the Bulls. Minnesota is already playing without Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, JJ Barea, and Brandon Roy because of injuries. Nikola Pekovic sprained his left ankle Monday. Budinger emerged as a valuable perimeter player in his first season in Minnesota, averaging 11.8 points per game . . . Royce White, the Houston Rockets’ first-round draft pick, is currently away from the team and says the club has been ‘‘inconsistent’’ in its agreement to help him cope with his anxiety disorder. White made a deal with the team to travel by bus to some games this season so he could confront his fear of flying and obsessive compulsive disorder over the long term. He flew with the team to its season opener in Detroit, then traveled by bus to games at Atlanta and Memphis. He was not with the team for Monday’s home game against Miami and also missed Tuesday’s practice.
