Why do these fellas play?

These three college Seniors all play for the most successful NCAA powerhouse basketball team, the Kentucky Wildcats. Look closely at their player stats, what distinguishes each of them actually has very little to do with playing the game.

The other day the Wildcats were playing the Bobcats of Montana St. (gave them a 60+ point beating, 86-28). The crowd cheered the loudest in the dying minutes for a single Sam Malone free throw.
