BYU men’s basketball player Jesse Wade had an unexpected twist to his Thursday night in the NCAA Tournament bubble in Indianapolis. He got stuck in the elevator.
His teammates managed to rescue him. That’s one way to practice team bonding.
The Cougars had several viral moments before they played their opening game of the tournament against First Four winner UCLA on Saturday night. They were really excited to take their COVID tests. Wade, “just recently freed,” re-enacted the scary moment.
After being freed from the elevator, Wade tweeted: “Scariest moment of my life but I knew the boys had my back.”
