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.
I will never see Kevin Ware’s injury again. A hundred times, I would watch Luke Hancock kneel beside him and comfort him.

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.
