MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A woman who suffered heart attack symptoms while watching a West Virginia University basketball game a few weeks ago got a surprise visit from the team’s leading scorer today.
Da’Sean Butler took a break from preparing for the team’s historic NCAA Final Four appearance to visit 74-year-old Agnes Channel at WVU Hospitals’ Ruby Memorial.
Butler surprised the Upshur County woman, an avid WVU Basketball fan.
According to family members, Agnes was reluctant to go to the hospital until after the game was over. She sports a temporary tattoo on her cheek of the WVU logo and says she hasn’t missed a game since she was admitted to Ruby.
Video of Butler’s visit is posted at WVU Healthcare on Facebook and Youtube.

Earlier this week, we were shocked to find out that, after all of the upsets in this year's NCAA Tournament, there was a perfect bracket out there.
After Thursday's play, there isn't.
Alex Herrmann, the 17-year-old autistic prognosticator from Glenbrook South High School, saw his flawless-guessing streak go by the wayside when Butler dismissed Syracuse with an upset victory in Salt Lake City. He did, however, manage to accurately pick Kansas State, West Virginia and Kentucky to advance.
Herrmann, bless his heart, has Purdue winning it all, so it was really only a matter of time before this feel-good story reached the end of its road.
The Internet has been abuzz with a good deal of doubt over this story, and really, for good reason. The odds of going 48-for-48 through the opening two rounds is one in 13,460,000. Herrmann entered his bracket on CBSSports.com's Bracket Manager, which does allow users to change their picks after games are completed. The teen's family insists this isn't what's going on. The good people over at NBC Chicago placed a call to the Herrmann home last night, but it wasn't returned.
Tonight, Alex likes Northern Iowa, Tennessee, Purdue and Baylor to win.
