Sixteen year-old Braxton Upthegrove will be in the hospital Friday while his Henry Clay High School basketball team plays in the Kentucky State Regional Quarterfinals.

Upthegrove recently underwent an emergency operation and has been in the hospital for more than a week recovering.

The Henry Clay basketball manager has been waiting three years for a kidney transplant.

His mother Michelle Upthegrove said Braxton will need new lining for his dialysis within weeks, on top of waiting for a new kidney.

The Henry Clay basketball team will honor their manager during Friday's game by wearing green shirts and ribbons to raise organ donor awareness.

Braxton's mother will also speak to the crowd.

Tip-off for the game is at 6:30pm Friday at the Frankfort Civic Center.
