DeAndre was devastated. He had been very close to his father, the two sharing the bond of basketball. Calvin had taught his son the game, urged him to practice, beamed at DeAndre’s successes and was always willing to lend a hand when it came to tuning up the mechanics of his shot. But in an instant, he was gone, without even a chance to say goodbye. “Without my dad, none of this is possible,” Kane told Sporting News. “He was the one who put the ball in my hands as a kid. I know he is up in heaven watching down on me and happy, smiling down. I am happy to be doing this, for him. Every day I step on the court, I am doing it for my dad, so this is all for him.”
It was a little more than two years ago that Iowa State point guard DeAndre Kane bottomed out. His father, Calvin — himself a star point guard at Schenley High in Pittsburgh in the 1970s — had been preparing to visit his son at Marshall, where DeAndre Kane was finishing his sophomore year. But before he could leave, Calvin Kane collapsed and died of a brain aneurysm.
