With the Season Over, Stewart And Her UConn Teammates Return to Twitter

  • Date:
    Apr 16, 2015

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

She’s baaaack! Six-time gold medalist and two-time USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year (2011, 2013) Breanna Stewart had been radio silent on Twitter since last November. That’s because University of Connecticut women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma mandates that his players stay off social media during the season. But now that Stewart and the Huskies have won their third consecutive NCAA national championship, she has been quite active on Twitter.

  Two-time Ohio Mr. Basketball and USA Basketball gold medalist Luke Kennard did more than just represent his country in Saturday’s Nike Hoop Summit. He was the USA’s top scorer with 22 points.

  Some of the players at the Nike Hoop Summit – all high school seniors -- had already declared their college intentions for the fall. Six-foot-8 Bishop O'Dowd H.S. (Oakland, Calif.) forward Ivan Rabb was one of the undecided players. Not anymore – Rabb announced Monday on his Twitter feed that he will be going to Cal.

  Six-time USA Basketball gold medalist Tina Charles, who has been playing for Federbahce of the EuroLeague, was grateful that EuroLeague has made Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) mandatory at all games. Charles’ foundation, Hopey’s Heart, is dedicated to the donation of AEDs to help prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest among athletes.

  ESPNW is usually a good source of features and information about women’s basketball players. In this case, it’s a women’s volleyball player providing some information about her brother – three-time gold medalist Stephen Curry.

  It’s worth noting that among the 15 first-, second- and third-team players on USA Today’s All-USA teams, no fewer than eight played for USA Basketball in 2014 – including national player of the year Katie Lou Samuelson.
