Auburn’s Chuma Okeke, who tore his ACL during the Tigers Sweet 16 win over UNC, was wheeled out to the court to support his teammates in the second half of their Elite 8 game against Kentucky.
Okeke’s entire left leg was in a brace to stabilize the injured knee. He is scheduled to have surgery next week, but first he’s going to provide his teammates with some support.

It would be an incredible accomplishment for Auburn if they were able to make it to the Final Four and do so by going through two of College Basketball’s powerhouse programs.
