LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Michelle Green brings a billboard-size poster of her son’s head to his basketball games and has been known to cheer so aggressively that she has been thrown out of the gym.

Carmelita Clay is convinced that her son should be on national television because of his basketball skills.
