Sam Dekker was the first Wisconsin player to walk out to the Staples Center court before his team's Elite Eight game on Saturday night. He sat stone-faced on the bench as Arizona warmed up, getting up only to high-five and say hello to Wildcats guard Gabe York.
Arizona senior point guard T.J. McConnell broke down as he walked off the court into the arms of coach Sean Miller. Sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had to be consoled by teammates after he made his way to the bench.
With everything at stake, Kentucky didn't panic and played to perfection. The Wildcats made clutch shots, buckled down on fearless Notre Dame and kept their unblemished season intact. The shot at history and another NCAA title are in reach.
