Angel Morris, mother of former Kansas University basketball stars Marcus and Markieff Morris, will receive Headquarter Counseling Center’s first “Life Saver” award. She is being honored for her sacrifice and selfless actions to help others, including KU basketball player Thomas Robinson and his younger sister after the death of their mother, Lisa Robinson, last January.
For the past two decades, former Kansas University basketball stars Marcus and Markieff Morris have gone everywhere and done everything together.
