Malik Dunbar plays through bloody mouth
Auburn senior Malik Dunbar played a physical game in the Elite 8 against Kentucky on Sunday, and that was one of the reasons he ended up on the bench with a bloody lip.
Midway through the second half, Dunbar was seen bleeding from the lip. Shortly before he left the game, he made his presence felt with a massive block.

Dunbar later picked up his fourth personal foul, so Auburn coach Bruce Pearl pulled him out of the game. By NCAA rules, he should have been sitting on the bench anyway while he was bleeding.
