"(Wayde) was the glue guy," said LSU guard Skylar Mays. "He was a glue guy in the way he played because he played to make other guys better. He played to win. It was so effortless for him to help this team win games."

This year, LSU's basketball team is playing without arguably its most important player: Wayde Sims. He was the locker room presence who maintained team chemistry, making all the hustle plays to help secure victories. Sims was killed September 28 during a group altercation outside nearby Southern University.

In an exclusive B/R feature, Sims' parents (speaking for the first time on camera) and Mays (who grew up with Sims in Baton Rouge) look back at a life that still impacts the team and the Tigers community.
