From coach Tim Cluess in the Yahoo piece:
"He was one of those kids you wanted to coach because he was a different personality," Cluess said. "He wanted better in his life, and it wasn't just about basketball. He wanted to be mentored, he wanted someone who was going to care about him and he wanted to be in a family atmosphere."
