The Kentucky Wildcats stormed into Gainesville on the rise and poised to make a statement to the country. That was before tipoff.
Big Pat Young won the opening possession over star freshman Nerlens Noel, and the rest, as they say, was history.
The Gators poured it on the ‘Cats, winning their first game against the hated-rivals in two years.
Scottie Wilbekin and Casey Prather stole the show with this behind the back pass to slam dunk sequence. It was that kind of night for the Gators, and exactly the opposite for Kentucky.
We are all wishing Nerlens Noel the best in his recovery. The big man went down with a brutal knee injury in the second half. Here’s a video of the play.
