Battling through the pain

Virginia Wesleyan senior Greg Montgomery knows what real adversity is. It’s adversity that has nothing to do with the game of basketball.

Real-life adversity feels different. It hurts more, a lot more, and it is far more difficult to overcome. Montgomery had to deal with it firsthand this month when his brother passed away from diabetes.

He was only 33 and laid to rest Thursday in Texas. Montgomery spent the week there with his family mourning the death.

A day later, Montgomery, still heartbroken, was with his teammates when they battled Dickinson in the Sweet 16 on the campus of Randolph-Macon College. VWC won that game, 75-65. But Montgomery struggled. He took three shots and made one, finishing the night with two points.
