He’s baaaaaaaaack!

After dealing with knee stiffness and pain on Sunday morning, Auburn F Chuma Okeke decided he couldn’t make it to the Sprint Center to watch the Tigers’ Elite Eight game against Kentucky.

If you want to know how important Okeke is to this team, look no further than Bryce Brown going out of his way to be the first to welcome Okeke back.

Will his appearance spur the Tigers to victory? We’re looking at quite the finish from Kansas City.
