Javier Mojica won't be fazed tonight when his Central Connecticut State University Blue Devils face the heavily-favored Ohio State basketball team in the NCAA tournament.
He's already handled situations much more serious, the Globe reports today.
At the age of 10, Mojica saved his mother from a suicide attempt at their house in Milford, the profile says. (Mojica also lived as a kid in Framingham, Oxford, and Worcester.)
Now his mother, Nancy, tries not to miss any games.
"There's nothing better than to be alive, especially seeing my son," she said. "I sit out there and make a fool out of myself. I want to show him I'm his No. 1 fan."
CCSU faces OSU tonight at 7:10 in Lexington, Ky.
