As the world watched the Wofford Terriers in the NCAA Tournament, a hometown crowd was cheering too.

Spencer Collins is a Wofford player from Easley. Grant Stallard, Easley High School's Basketball Coach says just being a part of the "Big Dance" has always been a dream for Collins and he's worked hard for it.

"People love to see the local boy do good," said Stallard, "but I know the back story.  He's worked for everything that he's achieved and he deserves every bit of it."

His mother, Lori Alexander, says she noticed his talent from an early age.

"He shot really well, he played well, so this is something that he's always wanted to do so," Alexander explained. "We just knew that he was going to go places."

She says he thrives in situations like this and she loves to watch him play.

"There are no words that can describe how proud we are of him."
