The University of South Carolina continues to stay undefeated in this NCAA season. Ever since LeBron James gave Caleb Williams the green light after his masterclass against Colorado, more visitors have started to drop in. The latest to join is the late Lakers legend’s wife Vanessa Bryant and her daughter, Natalia. As expected, the game was yet another edge-of-the-seat thriller with a triple overtime and a Caleb Williams masterclass. Kobe’s daughter is also a student at USC so she had to support her side in special fashion.

Of course, this is not the first time we’ve witnessed a Mamba x Trojans collaboration.

Earlier this year, USC, along with a handful of other colleges joined forced with the Mamba Sports Foundation. The partnership will see the teams incorporate the ‘Mamba’ logo onto their jersey. Players on the partnering NCAA teams will also have the chance to wear Nike’s latest tribute shoes for Kobe and Gigi Bryant.

While the details get worked out, it’s safe to say that Natalia Bryant was a show stealer just for her tribute to the 5-time champion. Both Vanessa and Natalia have remembered ‘Mamba’ with frequent tributes in public appearances. This one just happens to foreshadow a soon-to-be collaboration. 

Coming back to the game, did the USC just go 6-0 with a triple-over-time win? Yes, they did!
