Taurean Prince and Royce O’Neale bonded as roommates, teammates at Baylor - The Salt Lake Tribune, It’s roughly 850 miles from Waco, Texas, to Atlanta, which is a day’s drive if you are committed, or a short flight.

For Royce O’Neale, his college teammate and roommate, it was a much longer route — one that led overseas before turning around back toward Utah. But on Monday night, their paths crossed again in Philips Arena. Prince met O’Neale in warmups before the game to congratulate him.

“When you’ve got a guy who can do a lot of things good, you’ll eventually find your way into the NBA,” Prince said. “He does a lot of things that a lot of guys aren’t willing to do.”
