There was another young star this weekend besides Louisville’s Luke Hancock, named the Final Four MVP after the Cardinals’ 82-76 win over Michigan.
It was 7-year-old Jack Hoffman, a brain cancer survivor who joined the University of Nebraska football Spring Game Saturday. Hoffman took a handoff and ran the ball (with a little help from his 300-pound friends) 69 yards for a touchdown, cheers and tears from the crowd, and the champion spot on ESPN for best play of the week.
Louisville Hopes for History
So the Louisville men won their championship; tonight, the Lady Cards go for theirs against UConn (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET). What’s interesting is if Louisville wins, they will be only the second school to win men’s and women’s titles in the same year. The other school? Their opponent, Connecticut – 2004.
Make Way for the Masters
And finally, golf is about to take center stage as the Masters will begin Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Although the tournament is gentlemen-only, the Club ended its all-male policy in August last year after 80 years. Look for Bubba Watson, who won in 2012 then welcomed an adopted baby boy, to try for a repeat, and of course Tiger Woods to add number five to his collection of the iconic green jackets.
