USA Basketball Stars Take To Social Media In Support Of Lauren Hill
Check out some of the people and organizations USA Basketball is following with this week’s USA Basketball Social Roundup:
Lauren, your courage has inspired us all and since I can't be at your game I am dedicating my next game to you. I'll also be making a donation to The Cure Starts Now Foundation in your honor. I challenge other players, fans, and pretty much everyone who reads this to donate as well. Visit http://www.1more4lauren.com/ #1More4Lauren #22
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.)
Congrats @Arike_O on committing to Notre Dame 🍀 miss you ❤️— Kristine. (@KristineAnigwe) October 24, 2014

After helping the USA World Championship Team win gold in Istanbul, Turkey, earlier this month, Angel McCoughtry is back in Turkey but this time playing for Fenerbahce Istanbul in the EuroLeague. From here, she’s got a nice view of the city!
Former Michigan State player Delvon Roe, who also happened to play high school ball for coach Eric Flannery at St. Edward High School in Ohio, helps us out here in plugging Flannery's new book, "Worthy of the Jersey." You can click on the link in Roe's post to pre-order a copy of the book. And don't forget to submit questions for Coach Flannery via Twitter using hashtag #AskCoachEric, and his answers will appear Friday on USAB.com.
