Luke Hancock - the other Louisville Cardinal we shouldn't forget

This past Sunday, many of us watched in horror the injury Louisville Cardinal Kevin Ware sustained after trying to block Duke Blue Devil's Tyler Thornton's 3-point shot attempt. What I saw immediately afterward (see above image) is something I'll remember even more.

Luke Hancock, one of Louisville's team co-captains, consoling Kevin.

Without Luke's presence of mind, I doubt Kevin would have been able to tell his team repeatedly not to worry about him and go win the game. This enables Louisville to regain their composure and go on to defeat Duke, 85-63.

Best wishes to Kevin, Luke and the rest of the Louisville team. It's going to be hard not to root for you.
