Hall).  A part-time student, Grace works as a clerk at the LA court house, and although she's barely scraping by in their Crenshaw home, she has a warm, playful, but tough-loving relationship with both her kids.  Grace is totally supportive of Spencer's chance to play for Beverly Hills, but she and Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) share a secret that will definitely impact Spencer's life.
