OTL piece on Iona's Michael Haynes

As basketball teams prepare to start official practice in the coming weeks, Iona will be missing a member of its freshman class. Michael Haynes had signed to play for the Gaels but over the summer was shot and killed in his South Chicago neighborhood when he attempted to break up a fight.

Outside the Lines aired an incredible piece on Haynes, who, in a sad ironic twist, wanted to use his basketball skills to move his family away from the violence.
