It’s clear that the start of basketball season brings a smile to the face of Destinee Walker, who won her first gold medal with the USA Basketball U18 National Team this summer at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship. Of course, basketball isn’t the only thing that makes her smile. Not long before this post, Walker tweeted that “Krispy Kreme donuts are the best.”

This is a big week for many high school basketball players, as it’s the start of the early signing period for 2015 college basketball recruits. One such player is Asia Durr, who has helped USA Basketball win gold each of the past two summers – she was part of the 2014 USA U17 World Championship Team, and tournament MVP for the team that won the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championship. Durr, from Douglasville, Georgia, has already verbally committed to the University of Louisville.
Counting down until Wednesday. Few more days until I officially become a part of card nation. 👌✏️💯— Asia Durr (@A_Hooper25) November 9, 2014
