Sports World Pays Tribute To Stuart Scott, Support For Army and More

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

The sports world this week mourned the passing of ESPN broadcaster Stuart Scott, and there was an outpouring of love for Scott throughout social media. 

Among the many professional athletes who found creative ways to pay tribute to Scott was USA Basketball National Team member Kevin Durant, as highlighted here.


Scott was a faithful University of North Carolina alum, and so the Tar Heels honored his memory Monday night at their home game vs. Notre Dame. And as this video attests, the UNC students were quite supportive.


Yes, USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo is among the notables featured in this Army Athletics video. It should be noted, however, that USA Basketball is impartial in its support of all the country’s troops! ---

It was a rough New Year’s for Jessica Shepard, a member of the 2014 USA Women’s U18 National Team that won the 2014 FIBA Americas Championship. Shepard, one of the top-rated girls high school basketball players in the country who has signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Nebraska in the fall, suffered a knee injury last week and will miss the rest of her senior season at Fremont High School in Nebraska. In addition to Shepard’s shout-out here, there was an outpouring of support for her throughout social media from her USA Basketball teammates and others.


Stephen Curry, a gold medalist from the 2014 USA Men’s World Cup Team, is enjoying perhaps his best season with the Golden State Warriors. Known for his shooting, Curry displays some super ball handling on this play from Monday night’s win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
