Former Oklahoma point guard and Norman-native Trae Young honored the late Kobe Bryant by donning a No. 8 jersey against the Washington Wizards. Bryant donned the No. 8 jersey for the Lakers from 1996-2006.

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were among nine killed in a helicopter crash in California on Jan 25. Young also gave his condolences to Bryant on Twitter.

Young eventually switched back to his usual No. 11 jersey during the game. He wore the No. 8 for 33 seconds. 33 was the number Bryant wore in high school.
