USA Basketball Stars Take To Social Media In Support Of Lauren Hill

  • Date:
    Oct 28, 2014

Check out some of the people and organizations USA Basketball is following with this week’s USA Basketball Social Roundup:


Sue Bird, the most decorated player in FIBA World Championship history, is one of many USA Basketball players who have publicly expressed their support for Lauren Hill, whose story has been well documented. Less than two months after turning 18 and committing to play basketball at Mount St. Joseph University, she was diagnosed with a terminal brain disease. Not expected to live through the end of the year, Lauren’s goal was to play one game for Mount St. Joseph. The school actually changed its schedule to make this happen, and the game takes place on Nov. 2. You can see all of the support for Lauren by following #1More4Lauren

--- This message is all the more meaningful here -- at 6-foot-11, it’s not easy for Myles Turner to not look down on most people. Turner, who helped the USA U18 Men’s National Team win gold at FIBA Americas U18 Championship and the USA Men's Junior Select Team win the 2014 Nike Hoop Summit, is getting set for his freshman season at the University of Texas. 


From one member of the 2014 USA Basketball Women’s U17 World Championship Team to another. Kristine Anigwe and Arike Ogunbowale were teammates on the team that captured gold in the Czech Republic this summer at the FIBA U17 World Championship. (Anigwe, by the way, has committed to play for California, Berkeley.)

Rabb was visiting Kentucky, one of his final five college choices.
