Watch out @Dame_Lillard there’s a new cover athlete in town & she’s an absolute star. #NBALIVE15 Lauren Hill Edition!

By now you are aware of Lauren Hill’s story. It is as heartbreaking as it is inspiring. The college freshman at Mount St. Joseph was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Her tumor is inoperable. Through her battle, she has helped raise money for research while kicking off the 2014-2015 college basketball season with the official official points, as she scored an opening layup in her first collegiate game on Nov. 2.

On Thursday, Hill had the image of her layup immortalized on a Wheaties box. The next day, EA Sports put her on the cover on NBA Live 15, bumping Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard from the cover. Lillard retweeted the EA Sports picture.
