Billy Donovan-coached USA U18 wins gold medal: Nicely do, Coach. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun)

Preston Tucker and Mike Zunino named All-Americans: By the American Baseball Coaches Association. Two guys who will be difficult to replace. (GatorZone)

Jonathon Crawford named to USA Baseball Collegiate National Team: At least this guy's coming back. He's pretty good. You're welcome for that expert analysis. That's what I'm here for. (Gatorzone)

Florida finishes second in Directors' Cup: Second place is still a big deal. UF still has a good chance at winning the men's Capital One Cup. They'll win it for the second year in a row as long as Arkansas doesn't win the CWS. (Orlando Sentinel)

Hornets-Wizards trade makes Beal to the Wizards at No. 3 very likely: Washington acquired Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza from New Orleans in exchange for Rashard Lewis and the No. 46 pick. It seems inevitable they'll take Beal with the third pick. A backcourt of John Wall and Beal could be pretty darn good. (Alfie Crow, SB Nation)

NBA mock draft: Supports the notion that Washington is taking Beal with the third pick, unless Charlotte picks him at No. 2. (Matt Moore, CBS Sports)

Dorian Finney-Smith confirms transfer: Dude's going to be a heck of a player. If I were a betting man, I'd go on ahead and invest -- yes, invest -- $100 or so into Florida winning the 2013-14 title. Finney-Smith, Damontre Harris, Kasey Hill, (probably) Chris Walker and some shooting guard who can shoot 3s (Michael Frazier?). That's a monster lineup. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun)

Percy Harvin requests a trade: Says it's not about the money. We don't know all the details, but it doesn't seem like Harvin has too much leverage here, still having two years left on his contract. But just for fun, here are some teams I'd love to see him play for: Houston Texans, New York Jets, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers. (Associated Press)
