Louisville guard Luke Hancock, who was named the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player three weeks ago after leading the school to a national title, is scheduled to have his postseason beard shaved off on Wednesday to help raise money for cancer research.Hancock's facial hair became a symbol of Louisville's success during the NCAA Tournament as the junior refused to shave his beard as long as the top-seeded Cardinals continued winning.“Wednesday we’re are going to do a little event at 5 ‘clock, trying to raise a little money for cancer,” Hancock told Wave3. “I’m obviously going to get this shaved off finally, I think Stephan (Van Treese) is going be there, Mike’s (Marra) going to be there, all the guys are pretty much going to go.”Also of note is the fact that Hancock's father is currently battling a crippling disease himself. So, the motivation for one of Louisville's most beloved players to do this hits close to home.Via NBC Sports
