Luke Hancock is an American former professional basketball player. He played in six games for Panionios of the Greek Basket League before tearing a muscle in his calf, ending his career.

After transferring from George Mason University, he played college basketball for the University of Louisville.

While at Louisville, he won the 2013 NCAA championship and was named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player, becoming the first substitute ever to win the award (later vacated due to the 2015 University of Louisville basketball sex scandal, then restored after Hancock settled a lawsuit with the NCAA).

On September 30, 2019, the NCAA reinstated Luke Hancock’s MOP status (without an *) in his capacity. This decision did not, however, change the status of the vacated 2013 Louisville Cardinals Division I Championship.

After going undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft, Hancock joined the Orlando Magic for the Orlando Summer League, & the Houston Rockets for the Las Vegas Summer League.

On September 25, 2014, he signed with the Memphis Grizzlies. However, the Grizzlies later waived him on October 13, 2014.

On November 4, 2014, Hancock signed with Panionios of the Greek Basket League. He played in six games before tearing a muscle in his calf. The injury made him realize he needed to prepare for life after basketball, so he retired from the sport, studied to become a financial adviser, and eventually began working in Louisville, Kentucky, for Lamkin Wealth Management.

After basketball, Hancock continued his community involvement in Louisville, most notably with the nonprofit Families for Effective Autism Treatment of Louisville (FEAT).

He first became involved with the organization in 2014 while still attending Louisville.

After returning from his brief professional career in Greece, he started organizing basketball camps for children on the autism spectrum, which he has continued to do ever since.

As of July 2017, Hancock serves on FEAT’s board of directors.

Hancock married the former Kaelyn Gault in October 2019.

In 2019, Hancock joined ESPN as a studio analyst for the ACC Network.
