For an Omaha man and his match through Big Brothers, Big Sisters the basketball court is a great jumping off point.

Abraham Zabih and his Jr. High match J'Tavion have been hanging out for nearly a year. "We play a lot of basketball, we've been to a Husker game and he actually likes to help me with my photography project," said Zabih.

Even with a job and his own studies as a college student, Abraham has plenty of time for J'Tavion. "A few hours a month, sometimes more it depends," said Zabih.

J'Tavion's family has opened up to Abraham too, "It feels like he's my real brother."
