Brad Stevens pays visit to former Butler player battling cancer

Celtics [1] coach Brad Stevens [2] took advantage of Tuesday’s off day to visit a former Butler player recovering from cancer treatment in Indiana.

Andrew Smith, who was on the teams that made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA [3] championship game and graduated last year, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma while playing professionally in Lithuania, according to the Indianapolis Star [4]. He returned to his Indiana home to begin treatment.
