It must be hard sitting on the sideline while your team goes to battle in the NCAA tournament, even for the cheerleaders. One of the Kentucky male cheerleaders grabbed onto Cincinnati Bearcats forward Octavius Ellis and refused to let go after he had fallen into the Wildcats' court-side spirit section.
Maybe the guy was holding Ellis back to give the Wildcats' a head start. Or maybe he was looking to tap in for a turn on the court. Either way, it was an interesting moment.
