Sunday night, UNC sophomore Luke Maye hit one of the biggest shots in school history to lift the Tar Heels past Kentucky and into its 20th NCAA Final Four appearance.
Monday morning, Maye made it to his 8 a.m. Business 101 class. Maye, a 6-foot-8 forward, sat in the front row -- but not before his classmates gave him a standing ovation.
Classmate Jack Sewell captured the moment and put it on Twitter. Not long after that, Sewell -- like Maye -- became a trending topic on social media as his tweet was shared on several national media outlets including Yahoo Sports, NCAA March Madness and Bleacher Report.
