She got game!

Former FLOTUS Barbara Bush hit the basketball court at Texas’ Toyota Center earlier in the week to shoot some hoops and talk literacy for a new PSA with the Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard.


Howard helped the 90-year-old Bush around the court and even cuddled up for some sweet promotional photos – both wearing matching Rockets jerseys, of course.

The joint PSA will encourage viewers to volunteer at a school, library or nonprofit through Connect4Literacy.org, a website created by the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, according to the organization’s Facebook.

“Dwight is a fun loving guy,” Neil Bush, Barbara’s son and the co-chair of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, told Houston’s Culture Map. “And mom is about as witty as they come at the age of 90. They were very playful. It was so cute to see this shrinking little 90-year-old with this big, tall virile guy get along so well.”
