Louisville point guard Peyton Siva has had his ups and downs leading the Cardinals this season. But it doesn’t come close to comparing to what he went through as a teenager in Seattle.

Siva’s sister was in jail, his brother was in jail, and his father was in and out of jail.

In the video below, Siva and his father talk about how Siva rescued his father from potential suicide when he was just 13 years old, and how Siva’s father turned his life around starting that day.

MWilson..... YOU SUCK


I hate the UK basketball program and being from Memphis I'm anti UofL  but I'd never stoop to the trash that you put on here.    This is so far beyond UK, UL, or whomever you root for.  You are a heartless, selfish, ingnorant person.   I applaud Siva for speaking about such a incredible thing in his life.  Something that most likely not only saved his father but saved him.  UK, UL, Memphis..... thats all just basketball or football or whatever sport you choose.  This story is life.

Are you some kind of a .caveman. I can't believe even from a Kentucky fan the level of you stoop to. You must have got beaten up in school all the time growing up. you also must have been the last picked in games and you most likely took a relative to your prom. Grow up or don't write anything you a%^&***(((le.

MS. Wilson,

There is more to life than Basketball. Let Alone College Basketball.  The Fact That This Kid( Whether helped his father or Not) Could Have Easily Ended Up Along With His Family Memebers...Thousands Of Young Athletes Never Get The Chance To Follow Through With Their Dreams Because Of Tough Enviorments Their Raised In.  This Is A Story Of Turning Not 1 But Probably 2 lives around. For You To Say He Sucks BEcause Your A Kentucky Bball Fan Is Ignorant And I Feel Sorry For Ya....

Your Comments Show Such Ignorance That I Had To Reply.


Sad For You,

A Human Being With A HEart

Excuse me sir coming from a lifelong wildcat fan who actually lives in the state of Kentucky, I withhold my right to say Peyton Siva SUCKS, whether he saved his dad or the president, it runs deep within my veins to express the hate i feel for Louisville basketball ( on the court or off). Now will I get ugly and physical and shout and scream at fans in Rupp or Yum , no absolutley not, We Kentucky fans have a certain class amongst ourselves to where we appreciate and give credit to other programs, Now your probally saying "What class??, Your coming into a heartwarming article about Siva and his father and saying he sucks". Well Louisville is not one of those programs


Thank You for reading

Sincerely, 

Extreme wildcat fan who has no soul for downing Peyton Siva in a lift Louisville up article written by Jeff Borzello

Don't be a jerk.  I am a wildcat fan too, but this is not just about basketball and UK vs. UofL.  This kid has gone thru a lot.  Dont hold it against Peyton that his coach over blows his ability and potential.  Siva is a good player, playing on a bad team right now.
