The story is nothing short of amazing...
Mount St. Joseph's post player Lauren Hill is fighting DIPG- a cancer that attaches itself to the brain stem and spiders out from there. It's an inoperable brain tumor that has given all of us the chance to learn about this monster and how we can possibly attack it from this moment on.
The cancer has given her a more evil diagnosis and a very short timetable- maybe a month or so.
The MSJ season opener with Hiram College was moved up- thanks to the NCAA giving special papal dispensation- and the game was moved to Xavier University's arena. The 10,000-plus seat arena sold out in an hour.
And, as it should have been, Hill made the first and last baskets in the game.
Here's the first basket on the day...
