UNC-Kentucky was a keeper, a big-name showdown in a tournament dominated by new faces, and a thrilling finish in a month nearly devoid of buzzer-beaters.

Well, no need to imagine!
WKYT captured the above video of UK fans watching the final seconds from a Lexington bar, where things move rapidly from jubilation to shock, table-pounding, floor-crying, and a whole bunch of surrender cobras.
Here’s more video from the Lexington Herald-Leader, and again, the crowd turns quickly:

I bet they wish they were in Columbus.
