Russell Wilson's sister named to Under-17 women's national hoops team

Baby sister's surprise makes Russell Wilson's Memorial Day

Johnny Manziel may have had an awesome Memorial Day weekend, in a Johnny Manziel kind of way, but Russell Wilson had a great one too —€” in a Russell Wilson kind of way.

Wilson's little sister Anna, a Stanford-bound hoops star at the Virginia high school where Wilson won a state football championship in 2006, was selected to the Under-17 women's national team, and her proud big bro tweeted out the news.

"That's the best thing you could possibly do as an athlete, I think," Anna Wilson told USA Basketball's website. "To be able to represent your country, but as well represent my family and who I am. I'm so excited; I really have no words."

The 5-foot-7 point guard, who'll be a junior this fall, averaged 13.1 points, 4.9 assists, 4.4 steals and 3.7 rebounds last season. Check her out in action:
