INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Butler Head Coach and current Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens is in Indiana to visit a former Butler University player of his. 

His visit comes as the family of former Butler basketball player Andrew Smith is asking for prayers.

Smith has been in and out of the hospital since November, after a bone marrow transplant. 

Last night, his wife Samantha posted online, saying the family needs a miracle.

Last month, doctors revealed Smith's only hope is getting into a clinical trial. 

So far, there has been no word on if he was accepted into one.
