The tournament has already lost two stars off of #1 seeds that have impacted the tournament since it was set on Selection Sunday–Fab Melo to suspension and Kendall Marshall of North Carolina to the wrist injury. Today, the only drama in the Kentucky-Baylor game turned out to be a scary moment where national player of the year candidate Anthony Davis came down awkwardly on his knee.
A collective gasp went up, from Kentucky fans as well as basketball fans everywhere who want to see the best players compete. Davis was on the ground for several minutes and left the game. He has since returned to action. However, he did not look good, and did not try to jump to challenge a layup opportunity that he would normally eat up. He left again, got his knee worked on, and has returned, so hopefully it was just a hyperextension with stiffness.
