Shea Rush, JaRon's son, will do what his father wasn't able to do

Shea was two months old when Roy Williams, then the coach at Kansas, pulled a scholarship offer for JaRon, then one of the nation's top recruits. JaRon and Williams haven't spoken in the 18 years since, and each say they regret how that ended. Now, Shea will play for Williams at North Carolina.
