"You're playing Kentucky and they're one of the handful of blue-blood programs in the country". Kentucky played tight man-to-man defense throughout the possession and with the shot clock winding down, Monk made a fantastic play.
Despite the epic contest, both teams said it won't have any bearing when they meet for just the second time in school history. Monk then went to the line and knocked down a pair of free throws to make it a three-point game.
"We were just playing defense", Adebayo said.
"They're young, but they have a will to win and play with courage and are skilled basketball players and great kids who share", coach John Calipari said.
"It matters what we think". But these guys guarded it. Shamet's confidence was tested to the the highest-level of play in his career. After scoring 15 points and grabbing 18 rebounds in Friday's 79-70 win over Northern Kentucky, Adebayo had 13 points and 10 rebounds on Saturday.
Lynn Marshall, Gregg's wife, was filmed by Kentucky Sports Radio's Drew Franklin after getting a little rowdy in the stands during last night's exciting game between the Shockers and Wildcats, which Kentucky won 65-62. "We had a couple of really bad passes that fueled their transition". Against the Shockers, he was 3 of 10 in 29 minutes.
Wichita State held Kentucky to its lowest point total of the season. And it's something insane like Kentucky, UCLA and North Carolina have 20-something national championships between the three of them (in the same bracket). Wichita State may well have pulled off the victory had Malik Monk not deftly made a block on Markis McDuffie during Wichita State's penultimate possession.
Kentucky and Wichita State aren't rivals, but based on the previous meeting between the two schools, it's hard to believe they've only met once on the hardwood. Shamet scored 20 points in the Shockers' loss to the Wildcats.
Sources say the order to take down the video came from an employee of the Indiana Pacers, acting on a request from Wichita State, who cited the NCAA's rules on posting video during a game. "But I didn't do what I was supposed to do in the end".
I don't want to forget Derek Willis, although it seems as if Willis has labored through anonymity for most of his four years.
"Kentucky has two National Basketball Association guards that really know how to play". Monk finished with 14.
Didn't happen. Calipari let Willis rest as Wichita State shot free throws. They never allowed Wichita to lead by more than four points. Reportedly threatening Franklin with having his tournament credential revoked, an NCAA official approached Franklin after the game in the media room and demanded he delete the video from his personal account.
A reporter on the scene tweeted about Lynn Marshall's state during the incident.
- The Shockers' starting lineup is comprised entirely of underclassmen.
With the Shockers succeeding in forcing United Kingdom into a half-court battle, Adebayo stepped up with his second double-double in a row and fifth in nine games.
