The Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic announced that its Tournament Most Valuable Player Award will be named after the HCHC career scoring leader Justin Hardy. Hardy passed away at age 22 from stage four stomach cancer. Even after his diagnosis, he continued to play college basketball at Washington University and worked toward a double-major in accounting and finance while undergoing treatments. Despite a grim prognosis, Hardy averaged 11 points per game and provided a story of perseverance that inspired people across the country. Hardy set the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic career scoring record, which still stands today, with 233 points in 12 games from 2015 to 2017.
