INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – The Cavs were missing one player at practice today and for good reason.

Point guard George Hill was excused by the Cavs to attend his graduation from IUPUI, where he was one of the commencement speakers.

Hill received his degree from the school of liberal arts 15 years after he began his college studies.

Hill is the first in his family to attend college and complete his degree.

He will meet up with his teammates in Boston later tonight and be ready to go on Sunday against the Celtics.
