UK fan's dream of attending Final Four comes true

UK fans are finding their way to New Orleans in all kinds of ways.

A young man and his family dreamed some day they might see a UK Final Four in person. How they got to the Big Easy is the story of near tragedy, courage and love of the Wildcats.

He can hardly believe he is watching his Cats in New Orleans at the Final Four. The journey for Lucas Cannon from Fleming County to New Orleans would have seemed impossible almost three years ago. In August of 2009, he was driving a tractor and remembers falling off. A massive wheel heading right for him.

The now 19-year old lost one leg. The other leg, he can not feel his foot. Since the accident, The Dream Factory worked to grant his wish to attend the Olympics. Then Lucas decided the Final Four was more practical. And he's predicting a UK victory.
