Oklahoma’s Lattin dealing with death of grandmother

HOUSTON (AP) Oklahoma forward Khadeem Lattin’s grandmother died Thursday morning soon after he arrived in Houston for the Final Four.

His paternal grandmother Brenda Fair had been battling lung cancer. Lattin is from Houston and had hoped that his grandmother, who also lived here, could see him play this weekend.

Instead he says: ”She’s a spirit now and she has my back no matter what.”

Lattin says it was a difficult night, but he’ll figure out a way to deal with things. He says: ”I was sad. I didn’t sleep a lot. But you’ve got to win for grandma.”

Oklahoma faces Villanova in a national semifinal on Saturday.
