Penn State sophomore guard D.J. Newbill lost his mother to cancer last week. Tawanda Roach died on Saturday morning, only a few weeks after she'd been diagnosed.
The entire basketball team and staff are heading to Philadelphia this morning for funeral services.

Terrible news to hear. My thoughts and prayers go out to D.J. and his family.
class act for the whole team and staff to go...really shows the meaning of basketball family...
Tough thing to swallow for Newbill.
Saw this on the twittersphere this AM. Thoughts and prayers go out to DJ and his family.

That's terrible to hear.
Wow, that's so sad to hear, thoughts are with DJ. Glad to hear the PSU family is heading to Philly in support.
Thoughts and prayers for DJ and his family.
Not what I wanted to see when I opened a thread on Newbill. Very, very sad.
From our family to D.J., our prayers are with you.
Life is a quick trip, as those who are nearing the finish line can attest to. Enjoy each day and do your best to lose as much anxiety and negitivity as you can. Oh yeah, Pat Chambers is a class act and so is our B'ball team. I'm proud to be a season ticket holder.
Terrible to hear. My father died over Christmas break my freshman year. Thoughts and prayers to DJ and the rest of his family.

Definitely praying for the Newbills...that is absolutely awful.
Thoughts and prayers to DJ and family at this difficult time.
That is awful. Nice to see the show of support to help the young man through a terrible time.
Sad to hear. God Bless DJ and his family.
My sympathy to DJ and his family, and so proud of our basketball team and coach for their support during this difficult time for DJ.
my thoughts go out to DJ and his family. My mom survived cancer when I was in high school and I know how tough the process can be.
