Travis McKie had just scored 19 points on his senior night, helping Wake Forest pull off a memorable victory over Duke. It was McKie's first victory over Duke, and the Demon Deacons' first win against their in-state rivals since 2009.
Immediately after the final buzzer students rushed onto the court, and no one would have blamed McKie if he started celebrating immediately. Instead, McKie pulled off an amazing act of sportsmanship that we've never seen before in a college basketball game.
Noticing that Duke's Rasheed Sulaimon was engulfed by Wake Forest fans, McKie took a few moments to carry Sulaimon to safety. You can see the pair at the end of the following videos:
At this point Duke players have become used to fans at opposing arenas rushing the court following their team's victory (it happens about 80 percent of the time), but as coach Mike Krzyzewski has stated, the court stormings are dangerous for players.
Thankfully for Duke, Sulaimon escaped the scrum thanks to the quick thinking and kindness of an opposing player. Hats off to McKie, who had plenty of time to celebrate after dragging Sulaimon to safety.
