EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - The manager of the East Stroudsburg University Women’s Basketball team will get to meet her favorite NBA player thanks to help from social media.
Rachel Grace has worked with the team since her freshman year.

Rachel and her teammates posted a video to social media asking Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors to invite them to a game when Curry travels to the East Coast.
