NBA star Stephen Curry on Tuesday raised more than $21,000 for the family of a young woman who was stabbed to death at a subway station in California.

The Golden State Warriors point guard dedicated his SC30 Select Showcase game — a camp for top high school basketball players that Curry coached with his brother — to Nia Wilson’s family.

Curry live-streamed the event and asked viewers to donate during the game. He raised $21,025, according to Bleacher Report.


Wilson, 18, was stabbed in the throat earlier this week while walking on a subway platform in Oakland. One of Wilson’s sisters, Leitfah Wilson, was also stabbed, but survived. The 27-year-old male suspect in the unprovoked attack has been charged with murder and attempted murder, according to CNN.

Police said they have not yet established a motive for the attack, but did not rule out that it may have been bias-motivated. Both victims are black, and the suspect is white.

"If there is evidence uncovered that this defendant murdered and attempted to murder these two young African-American women because of their race or any other factor as outlined in the hate crime statutes, the complaint will be amended to allege the hate crimes,” the county district attorney’s office said.

Wilson’s father expressed his gratitude toward Curry, telling NBC Bay Area News the outpouring of support is keeping his family “strong.”

"This is what's keeping me and my family so strong," he said. "All the support from giants like Stephen Curry and abroad, that's what's keeping us strong at the moment."
