Northwestern senior center Alex Olah is getting set to play his final regular season home game at Welsh-Ryan Arena Sunday afternoon. Olah has played 120 games in a Wildcat uniform. His parents have been in attendance for zero of them.
That's because Olah is a native of Timisoara, Romania. He came to the U.S. for high school before coming to Northwestern. His parents, however, remained in Romania while he stayed with a host family, and then in Evanston at college.
With senior day two days away though, Olah's parents arrived in the United States for, according to Northwestern Athletics, the first time.

A really cool moment for a player that, through ups and downs, has had a really strong career at Northwestern.
