Willie Cauley-Stein was understandably a popular guy this afternoon, and his breakout room was by far the most packed of all five UK starters. Willie made it worth it with this great quote about his journey over three years at Kentucky:
“I feel like I’m on a mission. I said that day, after we lost (to Robert morris), I have never won a championship before. I’ve never won anything, any crazy awards, and I’m coming back to fill that spot in my heart, that emptiness. And crazy enough, it’s happening. Never thought it would happen like this, but it’s really happening. It’s crazy to think that two years ago, I was just talking. And now I’m living it, and it’s sensational.”
And that’s why Willie’s the media darling.
