Oakland senior Max Hooper has certainly had a memorable season for the Golden Grizzlies, as he’s made headlines for exclusively shooting 3s and being wildly effective in doing so.

But what he did on Friday night trumps any of that. Hooper’s father is battling cancer, and the elder Hooper surprised his son by showing up to his Senior Night at Oakland. The video of their embrace will leave you speechless:

To top it all off, Oakland won the game by a final score of 108-97. It was one of the greatest father-son moments we've seen in sports in a long time.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
