Sunday afternoon, Rasheed Sulaimon and the rest of USA Basketball's U19 team defeated Serbia 82-68 to win the FIBA U19 World Championship for only the second time since 1995. The win also makes Team USA the reigning champion in every FIBA age bracket: U17, U19, senior and Olympics.
Sometime after the win, Sulaimon, who started eight of Team USA's nine games, tweeted out this picture with the caption, "I can't believe it. Momma imma champion. Did it for our country"
It's an emotional shot.
It also reminded me of a picture I took last Easter, after Duke's season ended in the Elite 8 with a loss to eventual champion Louisville. There was a different type of emotion at play then.
