HAMILTON, Mass. - Earl Williams knew early on that things would be fine. He would commute 29 miles from Cambridge to pick up his oldest son in the rural-suburban town of Hamilton, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The sound of a young Michael Carter-Williams dribbling a basketball was often the first thing the father heard as he drove up to the white colonial house on Cutler Street. That noise often led Williams to walk to the back of the house, where he would spot Carter-Williams performing basketball drills under the supervision of his stepfather, Zach Zegarowski.

Alssene Saintilus is one of the most intriguing basketball players in South Jersey. He also is a lesson in the power of persistence. The 6-foot-6 senior forward for Williamstown can dunk in traffic, knock down three-pointers, block shots, and play defense on the perimeter. He's still scratching the surface of his potential, mainly because he's still learning about varsity competition. But it's not Saintilus' considerable athletic ability that's the secret to his sudden success.

QUEENS, N.Y. - One by one, each basketball made its way out the front door of the West Philadelphia row home. The ball that was scuffed and marked from being pounded into the playground court - gone. The one that swished for his 1,000th high school point - gone. The ball that earned him the nickname, "Too Easy" - gone. More than just old basketballs, they were painful reminders of a young life that was stolen away. After the killing of his younger brother, Halim, Nurideen Lindsey couldn't look at a basketball - let alone touch one - anymore.
