Your Help is Needed!

A tragic event has occurred to one of our own. A member of our basketball community has suffered a terrible loss this past weekend. The mother of a young girl who plays for the South Texas Hoyas was shot to death on Saturday in a domestic violence incident. I will not get into the details of the horrible incident but this young child and her sibling need our help. South Texas Hoyas coach, Theresa Nunn is spearheading a fundraising effort to help this young girl. She can be reached at

This tragedy puts the GAME of basketball in perspective. It is a GAME. Life happens and this horrible incident has happened to a beautiful young LIFE. Let us help her in a time when she needs us. We have cheered this young girl as she has grown into a wonderful basketball player. The evolution of her game has been a joy to watch. However, now is the time for our cheers to be truly heard. Now is the time for our encouragement and support to reflect our will.
