WNBA players gathered behind two Florida High School basketball players after their school banned them from playing Thursday (December 10) for wearing Black Lives Matter shirts in warm-up.
Girls Talk Sports TV's Khristina Williams identified the student athletes as Jordana Codio and Khadee Hession from the American Heritage School in Boca Delray.
They reportedly wore the shirts in response to a student who allegedly posted a racial fraud in a virtual class chat weeks ago but was not punished by school officials, according to Williams.
Indiana Fever guard Erica Wheeler used social media to show solidarity with the banned players.
“Stand still for what you believe in @khadeehession! @americanheritagebocadelray How do you treat black athletes? “Wheeler wrote.
The Washington Mystics' Natasha Cloud advocated the teenagers too.

"The government that has tried to silence these athletes by canceling games over a BLM t-shirt should be fired," he added. "Institutional racism still lives and thrives in our educational system."
