On this morning's KSR radio show, Brian, a caller, told the story of his nephew's new friendship with Willie Cauley-Stein. The nephew, Blake Hundley, has been battling brain cancer for three years and he recently became friends with Cauley-Stein through a family friend on UK's track team. When the two met for the first time last week, Blake gave Willie one of his blue #TeamBlake bracelets and Willie has been wearing it ever since. He wore it in his sock during UK's three SEC Tournament games (no bracelets during play) and he texted Blake to tell him, "You're playing with me out there on the floor."

This story is further proof that we have an outstanding group of young men representing the University of Kentucky on the basketball court. Kudos to Willie for taking the time to make an impact on a young man's life; thoughts and prayers to Blake as he keeps fighting; and thank you to Brian for sharing their story with us.
