RED LAKE -- Most basketball players have dreams of their own. Alexis Desjarlait is chasing her brother's.

"He was phenomenal for his age," Desjarlait said of her late younger brother, Nolan Jr. "He would talk about going into the NBA. He would talk about college basketball, too. I just want to live up to his dreams."
