Kawhi Leonard: Basketball, Family, Honor

San Diego State is in the midst of the best season of basketball in school history.  Kawhi Leonard is one of the reasons why.  The young player is averaging 31 minutes and 15 points per game.

The most moving part of Kawhi's story is not just his success at SDSU, but the supplier of his drive.  Kawhi lost his father in a shooting three years ago, and the memory of his father is strong in the NBA-bound player.  His drive is a result of his desire to honor his father.

The following video from CBS College Sports Network shows the strong character and drive of the young Kawhi Leonard.
