Riley Morrison, a 9-year-old from Napa, loves the game of basketball and at the top of her list of role models is Stephen Curry.

National Basketball Association star Steph Curry is promising to make things right for a young girl who wrote a letter to the hoopster when she couldn't find Curry's latest shoes from Under Armour in sizes for girls. The Warriors star also announced the Under Armour team had something special planned for International Women's Day on March 8, to which he would invite Riley to a home game against the Denver Nuggets. "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock Curry 5's too".

"I asked my dad to buy me the new Curry 5's because I'm starting a new basketball season".

Michael Cohen a ‘Weak Person’ Who Is ‘Lying’ to Get Reduced Sentence
Cohen pleaded guilty in August to eight federal charges , including tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations. He was perfectly within his rights to continue to run his businesses even as he pursued the presidency, he said.

Well, Curry wrote back, and the response was great.

"Unfortunately we have labelled the smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".

Curry, a father of two daughters, took time to respond to Riley with his own hand written letter, in which he explained that the issue is being taken care of now and that he will be sending her a pair of Curry 5s. "We are correcting this NOW!"

Protest underway in Tunis over Saudi Crown prince's visit
Prince Mohammed's current tour comes ahead of his participation in the G20 summit in Argentina, starting on Friday. A youth activist group that criticizes Saudi limits on women's rights was among those demonstrating Tuesday.

In what should've been Kawhi's night to bask in all on his own, some dude named Durant had other plans, matching Leonard's season-high and raising him a game-high in points while shoving an egregious 51 down the Raptors' throats and nearly single-handedly stealing one for the ailing Warriors, who were without Steph Curry and Draymond Green.

The shoes have since been rebranded in the girls section of UA's site as "Grade School UA Curry 5".

Morrison's dad thanked Curry on Instagram later on, adding that he was "so proud of his baby girl for making a difference".

NASA’s InSight Spacecraft Successfully Touches Down on Mars
Nasa's Insight spacecraft is about to reach the most unsafe part of its journey from Earth to Mars . After months in space, the NASA InSight probe has successfully touched down on Mars.

Sure enough, just hours after Curry posted his response, his Curry 5 basketball sneakers were available in girls' sizes on the Under Armour website.
