Kobe Bryant throws L’s up with Louisville women’s basketball commit

CASHMERE, Wash. — Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gigi, took a trip to Cashmere, Washington, just to watch Louisville women’s basketball commit Hailey Van Lith.

The 5-star guard committed to the Cards in November, and threw L’s Up with Bryant and his daughter after scoring 35 points in her team’s 63-27 win.

“We took a trip to #cashmere today to watch @haileyvanlith11 hoop and she and her teammates put on a show! Can’t wait to watch her play next season @uoflwbb,” Bryant posted on Instagram.

Van Lith had previously worked with Gigi and her team in August.

She was the 3×3 World Cup MVP in 2019 and National Championship MVP in 2018. Louisville head coach Jeff Walz led Van Lith to a gold medal with the U19 World Cup team.

“She has been an integral part of USA Basketball and I enjoyed coaching her to a gold medal in this past year’s U19 international competition,” Walz said. “Hailey brings with her a unique skill set with a mamba mentality. There is no stage too big, nor a shot too difficult to pull off.”
