Think about this. Who was the last player from Roanoke to play in an NCAA men’s basketball final?
Cue the Jeopardy music. Time’s up. It was former Patrick Henry star George Lynch, who led North Carolina to the 1993 title.

Tonight, ex-Hidden Valley star Luke Hancock of Louisville becomes the first Roanoker since Lynch to make the championship game.
