Don’t Forget About Luke Hancock When Remembering Kevin Ware

To paraphrase Chris, I’ve never seen a grosser injury than what Louisville’s Kevin Ware suffered against Duke. But amidst the wicked gruesomeness of that scene was Ware’s teammate, Luke Hancock, right there, trying to keep him calm.

Local hoops fans may remember Hancock, who started his career at George Mason before transferring to Louisville. That’s the type of upward move you don’t see much of, but thank goodness.

Hancock, who we highlighted for his work with Mason two years ago, has excelled in his first season with Louisville, averaging 22 minutes per game and filling up the stat sheet as they head to another Final Four. I’ll be pulling for them, if not for the Mason connection then for what he did yesterday, when others couldn’t bear to look.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    I agree 100% !

    I can’t blame the others for the mass hysteria that ensued, but Oh to be like Luke!

    When the zombies inevitably come, I want to be on Luke’s team.

    I tuned in just after the injury and went to the internet to see what this was about. Now I’m looking at pictures and am utterly impressed with Luke Hancock’s composure. You are a phenomenal young man and friend to Kevin Ware. Prayers for all involved especially Kevin Ware and family.
