Lauren Hill's legacy honored by Indiana Fever

On Sunday, the Indiana Fever paid tribute to Lauren Hill's legacy by honoring her family prior to its game against the sky.

As Hill's parents walked out to center court, the team played a video celebrating the life of the 19-year-old Hill who passed away in April after battling brain cancer.

Hill's family was presented with a Fever jersey with Lauren's name and number 22 on the back of it. According to the Indy Star, before the Hills could leave the court, they were embraced by many of the Fever players.

While many see Lauren Hill as a hero, her mother Lisa Hill says as parents they didn't do anything out of the ordinary.

"We didn't set out to raise a superhero or anything," Hill told the Indy Star. "We were just normal parents."

During the game, the Fever donated $300 for each layup made to The Cure Starts Now Foundation. The two teams combined for 32 layups, and $9,600 were donated in honor of Lauren.
