From the Sports Editor: Wentworth made Wesley basketball his family

When Freeman Williams heard that Jim Wentworth had died, he did what his old coach would have wanted him to do.

Williams called some of his former Wesley College basketball teammates, both to share the news but also to see how they were doing.

“He preached family so much, that the first thought was to check on each other to make sure everybody was good,” said Williams.

Wentworth, who died on Wednesday in his home state of Kentucky at the age of 79, left a long legacy at Wesley.
