Kansas’ Thomas Robinson with his younger sister, Jayla, at their mother’s funeral today.
I’m glad the NCAA has used some common sense by allowing Kansas to assist Robinson’s family during this crisis.  And by family, I mean Thomas and his 9-year-old sister.  I know people deal with things like this every day, but my heart really aches for these two.  They lost basically all the family they had within the past month, and now Thomas, who is really just a kid himself, has to pick up the pieces while grieving and playing for a top-10 team.  The NCAA is allowing Kansas help move Jayla to Lawrence to be with her big brother, and it really is good to know these two will at least have each other.  I am definitely keeping them in my prayers.
