A little motivation from Sue Phillips, who led the USA Basketball Women’s U17 World Championship Team to gold in the Czech Republic last July. Phillips, who is the head coach at Archbishop Mitty H.S. in San Jose, California, will be the featured expert on USAB.com this week – submit your questions for her via Twitter using the hashtag #AskCoachSue.

While Kevin Durant is rehabbing his broken foot, the NBA’s reigning MVP took some time to acknowledge the NFL’s reigning MVP for setting the NFL’s career record for passing touchdowns on Sunday.
Congrats to the great Peyton Manning! We take him for granted because he's so consistent but we are witnessing a living legend!— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) October 20, 2014
Durant wasn’t the only one chiming in on Manning’s accomplishment. Here’s what Caleb Swanigan, a member of the gold medalist USA Basketball Men’s U17 World Championship Team, thinks about the debate over who’s better – Manning or Tom Brady. Of course, Swanigan is from Fort Wayne, Indiana, so he might be bias toward the former Indianapolis Colt.

Ferguson’s teammate on the USA Men’s U17 World Championship Team, Malik Newman, who was named MVP of the FIBA U17 World Championship, is up for shooting baskets any time of the day or night. He also likes his emojis.
