For Ira Harge Jr., the wheels started turning when he and fiancee Lisa Lujan were sitting courtside at a Monte del Sol basketball game.
Omar Ndiaye, a player on the school’s junior varsity, caught Harge’s attention for the way he handled the ball. As it turns out, Ndiaye has been playing with one hand, lacking the use of his right hand, but managed to emerge as a standout guard for the Dragons.
