The Auburn Tigers' win over the North Carolina Tar Heels was a costly one, with star rebounder Chuma Okeke succumbing to a torn ACL in the second half. However, that isn't stopping the injured player from being at one of the biggest moments in his program's history.
The sophomore forward from Atlanta, GA averaged 12 points and just under 7 boards per game, helping his team to the SEC Tournament title in Nashville.
He had scored 20 points and was 8-of-11 on shots from the field upon his exit Friday.
With or without Okeke, Auburn can still punch their ticket to the Final Four against SEC foe Kentucky, leading 58-56 with four minutes to play.
