UConn's Auriemma on Lauren Hill's incredible story

I doubt there's too many people who haven't heard or been inspired by Lauren Hill's incredible fight against cancer and how she has used her own personal battle to raise awareness for cancer.

After today's exhibition game I asked Geno Auriemma for his take on the story since the game she was playing in already happened earlier today.

"It is teaching everybody in basketball and outside a real life lesson," Auriemma said.

"Everybody was involved, everybody has been weighing in and that is not easy to do She is not the first person to suffer through this and I don't think that is even the story, the story is how in God's name does this kid handle what she is handling, I think that is the story for me

"From our end of it, I just can't believe there is a story out there like that. That is the kind of story they write TV mini-series leading up to this kid who loves something so much and it is television at its best and here it is living out in real life. It seems like everybody have been involved in some extent."
