Stark contrast to the girls basketball team that ran up the score to 100 points.  This player missed both technical free throws mandated because grieving player was left off the game roster.

Nice story.

I'm waiting for some of the idiots on this board, who are seriously lacking in compassion, to tell us that the kid should have just sat on the bench because rules are rules.

technically they followed the rules, the kid just missed the free throws on purpose.

The news and ESPN need more of these stories and less of Arod, T.O. and all the other junk they report on.

Awesome story... glad to read a true one, unlike the fiction tale A-Rod read to the world yesterday about his "cousin".

He should spend time with kids reading them stories.  He's really good at it.

Boys becoming men.  Doing the honorable thing.  Proud of the honor that was recognized, and sorry for the kid who lost his mom.  Awesome show of respect.

Sadly, these type stories wouln't sell on a regular basis and the masses can't get enough of the other crap ...
