Four games into Georgetown senior Tyler Adams' freshman season, he was diagnosed with a heart condition that seemingly ended his college basketball career. Adams is still on scholarship and he stuck around the team, helping out and cheering on his teammates from the bench.

That is, until today. 

In a classy move, John Thompson III started Adams on Saturday in the Hoyas' game against Seton Hall on what would have been his senior day, alongside fellow members of his class Jabril Trawick and Mikael Hopkins. Pretty great moment, right?

Then, an even better moment happened once the game began:

Seton Hall let Adams throw down one last dunk. Great move by Kevin Willard and the rest of the Pirates' staff.

After that, Thompson called a timeout and got Adams out of the game. But what an awesome moment for this senior on his last day at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. Great job by both schools for letting this moment happen.
