The moment they finally realized it was over, with about 9 seconds left, the five of them were still on the court.
They’d been there out a while – through an overtime without substitutions, most of the second half, all of crunch time. Much has been asked all along of these five Kentucky players, and they’d won 30 games.

Kenny Goins hit a three-pointer with 34.3 seconds remaining as Michigan State overcame a 24-point, 14-rebound performance by Zion Williamson to defeat top overall seed Duke, 68-67, in the East Regional Final Sunday evening in Washington, D.C.
R.J. Barrett, one of Duke’s three phenomenal freshmen, had a chance to tie the game with 5.2 seconds to go, but made only one of two free throws after Goins’ clutch shot put MSU up 68-66. Cassius Winston, Michigan State’s star man with 20 points and 10 assists, was able to dribble out the clock after receiving the ensuing inbounds pass and send the Spartans to Minneapolis.
