Nike consultant Terry Layton passed away last year after a fierce battle with cancer. Terry was remembered last night during the Nike Hoop Summit shown on ESPN2. He engulfed his life in international basketball and NIKE placed his initials on the World jersey.
Layton was the Athletic Director at the University of the Virgin Islands (99-00) and was a supporter of the Virgin Islands junior men's national team.

Looking back on his first semester as athletic director of the University of the Virgin Islands, Terry Layton says he's pleased that the men's volleyball team made the playoffs and a UVI weightlifter broke a record in the Organizacion Deportiva Interuniversitaria -or Inter-university Sports Organization -ODI, the predominantly Puerto Rican college athletic conference in which UVI competes.

Layton came to the athletic director's job with experience as a college and professional coach with an extensive background in the Caribbean. He was the head basketball coach at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo., when the team made it to the playoffs. His coaching record stands at 254 wins and 44 losses. He also coached at Northwest Nazarene from 1975-82. In his seven seasons at Northwest Nazarene, the team advanced to five consecutive NAIA District II playoff appearances from 1978-82. He was inducted into the school's Hall of Fame in 2009. He has coached professional basketball teams throughout the Caribbean and in Taiwan and has conducted Olympic coaching clinics in the Caribbean, South and Central America, and the Middle East.

Most recently he was the Global Scout/Consultant for NIKE Basketball.

A memorial scholarship has been set up in Layton's name

When Georgia big man Nicolas Claxton (211-SF-99) heads across the stage in Brooklyn on Thursday, his NBA fate manifested in the flat-billed cap he grabs from commissioner Adam Silver's hand, he wants you to be thinking about hard work even as you might gawk at his rail-thin frame. It takes work for a midlevel recruit from Greenville, South Carolina - ranked the No. 272 prospect in the country, with no scholarship offers from major college hoops powers - to become a possible lottery pick....   [read more]
