SAN JOSE -- Former Archbishop Mitty star Aaron Gordon was named to the under-19 United States basketball team late Monday night, USA basketball announced on its website.

Gordon, who led Mitty to the first Northern California Open Division championship in March, was the only player chosen from California.

"I'm so happy to make the U19 USA team at 17 years old. #GOLD is the only thing in mind," Gordon said on Twitter.

The team, coached by Florida's Billy Donovan, will compete in the FIBA U19 world championships beginning June 27 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Arizona-bound Gordon was named California's Mr. Basketball by Cal-Hi Sports in April, becoming the South Bay's first two-time winner of the state's most prestigious high school basketball award and the 10th player to receive the honor in consecutive seasons.

Gordon, the MVP of the McDonald's All-American game this spring, came up just short of ending his high school career with three consecutive state titles as Mitty lost to Mater Dei 50-45 in the Open Division state final in March.
