BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland men's basketball player Jordan Latham is one of several Greyhounds from the Baltimore area on Head Coach Jimmy Patsos' team. He joined the program before the 2011-2012 season after transferring from Xavier University, and his pull to be close to home was significant because of his close relationship with his younger brother.
Latham, who is now a junior for the Greyhounds, and his younger brother, Myles, have a close relationship, made more special because Myles is autistic.
Matt Bracken of The Baltimore Sun wrote a lengthy Christmas Day feature about the Latham family, and the story was the centerpiece of The Sun's Christmas Day coverage.
