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.
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.”
