PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — On Saturday night, around 5 p.m. by his watch, Kramer Robertson was at his Waco, Texas, home readying to go to a Baylor basketball game. He had primo seats, courtside, right behind the reigning NCAA national champs’ bench. He’s got a hookup.
That’s when his phone rang, better late than never.
He would never get to his mom’s game.
Robertson, the son of Baylor basketball coach Kim Mulkey, spent the next few hours packing “for the next six months, right” and readying for a 3 a.m. drive to Dallas to be there for the first flight to Florida.
