This is some serious dedication.

An 81-year-old woman was in the emergency room for a collapsed lung, but she refused to let doctors operate on her until the Memphis Tigers game in the second round of the NCAA tournament was over.

While dealing with a collapsed lung doesn't sound pleasant, this woman likely went into her procedure with a smile on her face, as Memphis was able to advance to the third round thanks to a 71-66 win over George Washington.
