Friends from Pittsburgh

Thanks to Christian for the tip about an NPR story this morning about two friends and basketball players from Pittsburgh, Jack Twyman and Maurice Stokes. Twyman, who became Stokes's legal guardian after the latter was severely injured in an NBA game, will be in Springfield a little over a week from today to stand in as his friend is inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Before going on to the NBA, Stokes was an All-American at St. Francis University.

The NPR clip (audio file) is here.
