You don't have to be a UI hoops fan to appreciate this

It's old news, but anyone who hasn't seen the video of the surprise reunion between UI hoopster Meyers Leonard and his U.S. Marine brother, Bailey Leonard, will enjoy watching this. For those who do not know, Bailey Leonard, who was serving in Afghanistan, showed up in C-U last spring and popped into an Illini pre-game practice. Meyers was, to say the least, taken aback. This is feel-good stuff.
