WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Days after his death, the UNCW men’s basketball team honored NBA great Kobe Bryant.
Before the Seahawk’s game at Towson, the team wore t-shirt with Kobe’s No. 8 and No. 24 to go along with #Mamba printed on the back.
“Tonight we honor someone who shaped how we see the game. It’s bigger than basketball. #MambaMentality,” the post on Instagram said.
UNCW lost to the Tigers, 77-66.
