Poythress has been an unsung hero during Kentucky's magical run to the national title game. Aaron Harrison will be remembered for hitting the game-winning shots, but Poythress has come up big on the glass and become an irreplacable part of this team since Willie Cauley-Stein was injured against Louisville in the Sweet 16.
Kentucky will play UConn on Monday night, tip off is set for 9:10 p.m. ET.
