[Brian Waller] met [Len Bias] in high school. Waller was in the 10th grade at Northwestern, Bias in the ninth. "I remember how he was afraid of physical contact and how he couldn't shoot from the perimeter," recalled Waller.
Dickerson can recall having a conversation with Bias early during his freshman year, then stopping to think, "Oh my gosh, I'm talking to Len Bias." He also can recall that there was a side to Bias he didn't know.
When he heard the news of Bias' death that morning, Slaughter called Lonise Bias, Len's mother, at her home.
