Jim Naismith, 81, of Corpus Christi, Texas, stands with a statue of his grandfather, Dr. James Naismith, outside of the DeBruce Center near Allen Fieldhouse during a recent visit to Lawrence. Although his grandfather passed away when he was just 3 years old, Jim Naismith has spent much of his life learning as much as possible about the man who invented the game of basketball in the late 1800s.
