“I thought that was super cool, because I honestly didn’t know how much I was going to play,” the 6-foot-11 Buchanan said. “Some guys got into foul trouble, and I had to step up. I thought I took advantage of the moment, and I was happy with the way I played. It does show a lot that they wanted me on the court at the end of that game; they trusted me to go out there to defend the ball, and get rebounds. I think that was a big moment for me, and for the state of Idaho, and Lake City, for Virginia. I thought that was super big that I was on the floor at the end of the game.”
