    Per his agent, former #Butler player Andrew Smith has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, interrupting his overseas playing career.

    Zak Keefer ‏@zkeefer 13m
    Smith has been undergoing treatment in Indianapolis and his return to Lithuania and a pro playing career is uncertain.

    Awful news, but I'm sure it goes without saying that we're all pulling for him to make a quick and full recovery.

    I heard about this a while back. Family has wanted it kept quiet. My understanding is that he is doing well with his treatments.

    Thoughts and prayers.

    You are so right. We get more comments and criticisms on this board about players and angst regarding lost games than we do when an announcement like this is made. THAT is a reflection on us all, I suppose.

    BUCU - You are so right. How many times do we bash players performances without any regard for them as kids? I hope this makes everyone think twice about that in the future. What a great young man Andrew is! Represented everything that is great about Butler. I will be thinking of, and praying for him and his loved ones. Come on Andrew! You can do this!

    With all the negativity on the forum, why don't we all take a minute or two and send some positive messages to Andrew Smith. He and his wife have started a blog about Andrew's battle with cancer. They can be reached at http://kickingcancerwiththesmiths.wordpress.com/. I'm sure it will make his daily chemo treatments go a little quicker if he can read some good messages from the die-hard Butler fans that hang out on this forum. #goDawgs

    I believe in the power of prayer, so PLEASE lift up Andrew. We are in the ICU and need this man covered in prayer.

    #Butler Friends: Andrew & @Samantha44Smith need prayer more than ever. Life is not fair. Life is not easy. But I pray for them to overcome!

    Sounds like Andrew has made some improvement from Samantha's tweet today:

    Thank you for the thousands of prayers. The Lord heard each one & gave us a miracle today. Still need prayers,but today has been incredible.

    So how exactly does that, work, if not enough people prayed then the Lord would have said forget it, I'm not healing him?

    on a serious note, I am very happy to hear he is doing better.

    Pretty distasteful post. You would have been better to keep that one to yourself.
