Lindsay Burdette at No. 2 for Stanford last year was another example in my opinion of "sacrificial lamb."
And Lindsay fully satisfied the 'expectation' by taking out Mathews and Will to help the team win the title Now THAT's a winner, everyone De facto MVP of the tourney!

Kinda similar to Hickey and Byron, I guess.
