VIDEO: Jacksonville State player surprised by mom he hasn’t seen in five years
Jacksonville State’s Nobertas Giga is a 6-foot-9 senior from Lithuania. He left his hometown in 2013 to come to the United States to play basketball in high school, and he hadn’t seen his mom since he left.
Until this week, when head coach Ray Harper surprised Nobertas by telling him he had to watch some film.
Dry not to let it get too dusty:
.@norbertasgiga thought he was meeting with the coaches to watch film when he arrived in Evansville for the @OVCSports Tournament. Instead, he got a surprise from someone he hasn’t seen since moving to the United States in 2013. pic.twitter.com/P0NELC0sRT— Jax State Basketball (@JaxStateMBB) February 28, 2018
