USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley issued the following statement regarding the passing of former USA Basketball president Tom Jernstedt:


USA Basketball is greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Tom Jernstedt. A USA Basketball Board of Directors member for many years and the USA Basketball president from 2001-04, Tom was a steadfast supporter and a tireless contributor to USA Basketball, international basketball and the NCAA.  He cared greatly about the sport of basketball and even more about the athletes and coaches who represented USA Basketball. Tom was a good friend and mentor to me and to many others at USA Basketball.  He will be missed.  Our thoughts and prayers go to the Jernstedt family.
