Luke Maye is the absolute definition of a student-athlete.

After burying the second-seeded Kentucky Wildcats with a game-winning jumper Sunday night, the North Carolina Tar Heels sophomore made it back from the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, in time for an 8 a.m. class Monday.

Oh, and he sat in the front row.

Maye's classmates gave him a well-deserved standing ovation after he booked the Tar Heels' trip to the Final Four.
