Babb, who missed what should have been his first two collegiate seasons due to illness and injury, finally made his home debut this weekend, as the Pioneers played Michigan on Saturday and Robert Morris on Sunday in the DU Face-Off Classic at Peter Barton Stadium [read entire article].

Hopefully he remains cancer free; it's always good to hear a story of young people overcoming whatever life can throw at them to pursue their goals. I wish the best of luck to him and the rest of the Pioneers this year.
