Earlier in the day on Tuesday, BYU Cougars guard Craig Cusick received troubling news, that his father was diagnosed with cancer. While Cusick is probably still dealing with the situation internally, he didn’t let it keep him from competing Tuesday night in a game against Utah State. Cusick even found a momentary reprieve when he came up with a last second shot: “As a player, you couldn’t dream it any better,” Cusick told the Deseret News. “I was just fortunate. … I saw that when Matt shot it there was a chance it would be a little bit short. I ran to where I thought it was going to come off and I was fortunate.” Good for him. Nice escape from something that could easily stifle most of us. We extend our thoughts to him and his family, especially to his father as they go through this difficult time.
