Talk about putting a cherry on top of a great “Sundae”.

But on Sunday, Miller and his UK teammates met the platinum-selling artist in the locker room minutes after advancing to the Final Four with a 76-69 win against North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament East Regional final.

“That in itself was a pretty nice experience to add on to (the Final Four),” Miller said. “Going to the Final Four (is bigger) by far. But still, Jay-Z. It’s crazy. This whole day has been crazy. I’m still taking it all in.”

Jay-Z, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, is a partial owner of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets. UK spokesman DeWayne Peevy said his visit to the UK locker room wasn’t planned in advance.

Peevy wasn’t certain if the rapper had been in the stands for the game. He was waiting in the hallway as UK players returned to the locker room after the game, and players were caught by surprise.

“I said, ‘Oh that’s Jay-Z!'” forward Terrence Jones said. “We all gave him a handshake and he came in the locker room, and we just kept screaming ‘Jay-Z in the locker room!’ He congratulated us, just said he was proud of us.”

Hov is smart cat. Sure he “congratulated” the kids on their big win, but we’re willing to bet money that some of these players will end up either playing for the Nets when they go to the NBA or will be managed by Jay’s management company in the future. We see you Senor Camel!!
