CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — It was a big week for UNC basketball player Luke Maye. The Chapel Hill sophmore recieved a standing ovation in his 8 a.m. class after a buzzer-beater final shot that sent the Tar Heels to the Final Four on Sunday.
Maye previously scored a career-high 16 points in a Sweet 16 win against Butler last friday Friday only to then top that record with 17 in the Elite Eight win against Kentucky on Sunday.
The Heels will now head off to the national semifinal in Arizona to play against Oregon. Maye will be catching a flight there by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest but, for now, he’s feeling an overwhelming amount of love from his fellow students at UNC.
