Pitt senior Phillips-Nwankwo eyeing different path

PITTSBURGH (AP) It would have been easy to bail. Nobody would have blamed him. Way too much work. Way too little reward. Way too much else going on in Aron Phillips-Nwankwo's life.

Only he couldn't. What would his mother have said? When the rest of his family asked if he was crazy, Stephanie Phillips told her son to trust his gut. So he turned down a full academic scholarship to Johns Hopkins in exchange for five years at the end of Jamie Dixon's bench in Pittsburgh, a chiseled if limited 6-foot-7 walk-on forward who spends most games as a towel-waving cheerleader.

Sitting with Dixon at a restaurant near his childhood home in Baltimore shortly after Phillips lost her battle with breast cancer in December 2013, Phillips-Nwankwo wondered when the fire that drives him would return or if he would even care if it did.
