College basketball: McLaurin was driven by what he didn't want to be
As a young boy, Sam McLaurin’s grandparents loaded him and his three siblings into the family van and drove around the seedier areas of Havana, Fla., outside Tallahassee.
Bobby McLaurin pointed out people he did not want his grandchildren to emulate. Some were people with problems like those of Sam’s parents.
