    Union senior basketball player Justin Harris got a big surprise on senior night Friday -- his dad on the court to celebrate with him even though he's battling stage four colon cancer.

    Justin's dad Steve Harris was a star at the University of Tulsa and played in the NBA, but now his wife says he needs a miracle to survive.

    Cancer couldn't keep Steve from seeing his son's final high school home basketball game though. After the other Union seniors were introduced, it was Justin's turn. That's when his dad surprised him on a wheel chair at center court.

    Union won the game against Sand Springs 70-59. Justin scored eight points, all in the first quarter when his dad was still there to watch.
