For every March Madness winner who is elated to win and move on, there’s another side that struggles to come to grips with defeat and a season suddenly cut short. After Sunday’s wild and wonderful finish to the North Carolina-Kentucky matchup, De’Aaron Fox showed how the other half lives with a raw and emotional reaction to Kentucky’s 75-73 loss in the Elite Eight. Still clearly devastated by coming up just short of the Final Four, the freshman star sobbed and clutched teammate Bam Adebayo while being interviewed. “This isn’t a locker room that looks like guys don’t care,” said Fox, who is 19 years old and likely headed for the NBA.
After losing in the final seconds to North Carolina, Kentucky Coach John Calipari explains why he will never go back and watch the tape of the game.
