WASHINGTON - Former Georgetown University men's basketball player was featured in the Indianapolis Star today in a story focusing on the wish of a young fan who is suffering from leukemia. The full story can be read here.

Hibbert will fly to Sacramento, Calif. to meet Lee Eddins, a 12-year-old fan of his who was diagnosed with stage four leukemia six months ago. Eddins had hoped to meet Hibbert when the Indiana Pacers traveled to California this coming season, but he may not live that long.

So Hibbert will fly to California this week. "Once I heard he had a dying wish, I knew I had to do something more than send him presents and Skype with him on the computer," Hibbert told the Star. "I'm usually uncomfortable going to hospitals when the Pacers do events because it's pretty tough to see kids in that situation. Once I heard about (Lee), I realized I had to get over it and do it for him."

An All-American at Georgetown, Hibbert starred on the Hilltop from 2004-08, helping to lead the Hoyas to the 2007 Final Four and to back-to-back BIG EAST Regular Season Championships. He was an NBA All-Star this season.
