"Ryan Boatright was in trouble with the National Collegiate Athletic Association even before he played his first game as a freshman point guard for the University of Connecticut Huskies.

Boatright had arrived at UConn in the fall of 2011 from Aurora, Illinois, a town of two hundred thousand an hour west of Chicago, with a per cap­ita income that ranks it 261st among Illinois cities. His mother, Tanesha Boatright, was a single mom struggling to raise four children; her job as a customer service representative for a health care company earned her a paycheck that was not much better than minimum wage.

Her father had been a well-known local track coach, and she'd run track herself in high school, before she got pregnant with Ryan when she was seventeen. It was obvious early on that her son was also athletically gifted; despite his lack of size — he never grew taller than five foot ten — basketball was his game, and both he and his mother came to see the sport as his ticket to a better life, not just for himself but for his family."
