Derrius Guice played the hero many times in his career at LSU, but the star running back pulled some real-life heroics Friday.
In a series of tweets on Twitter, Guice revealed that he witnessed an accident happen as he pulled up at a Baton Rouge intersection. He then helped free a woman who had been trapped in her car.
“Pulled up to a light in south Baton Rouge where a wreck occurred right as I pulled up,” Guice continued in his tweets. “It was a big truck and a smaller car. … I get out my car to check the scene and the lady was knocked on the back door window trapped by the airbags. … I opened the door, popped all the airbags and pulled her out.
“God is truly amazing and she’s in complete shock … She’s OK and she’s not hurt.”
Suns: This was the 34th different starting lineup Phoenix has used this season. … Booker has missed the last 11 games but has not been declared out of the Tuesday night season finale. … Jackson was hurt in the team’s loss to New Orleans on Friday night.
Warriors: At Utah on Tuesday night in regular-season finale.

On Friday, Sharp was honored in Chicago. He was given the A to wear on his sweater again and after the game did a lap in front of a cheering crowd.
“It’s never easy, but I’m just ready to take that next step in my life, and I’m looking forward to it,” Sharp said.
The Blackhawks honored Sharp with a highlight video in the third period, and he waved his stick and tapped his heart to acknowledge the sustained roar from what was left of the announced crowd of 22,218.
“It was a tough game out there, tough to concentrate with what was going on inside my head,” Sharp said. “But thankful that I was able to do that. The Hawks put that video on for me in the third, which was really special. The guys staying on the ice and making me do a lap was something I’ll always remember. So, special night.”
