Family, friends, teammates honor Lauren Hill

Friends, family and teammates paid their respects to college basketball player Lauren Hill Monday night in Cincinnati.

Hill was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in 2013.

She continued playing for her former high school, despite chemotherapy treatments.

In October, Mount Saint Joseph University moved up its first game so Hill could fulfill her dream of playing college basketball.

Friday morning, Hill died from her long fight with cancer.

Hill was 19-years-old.
