Kentucky Basketball: Best Moments From The Kentucky-Wichita State Game

New, 15 comments

You just love these kinds of things. You know you do. Join us as we relive a few of the great plays from a great game.

Take a look at this awesome video done by the SB Nation video team of Kentucky's best plays against Wichita State.

All I can say about this is that the level both teams performed at is simply stunning. You can't help but be amazed by the skill of Cleanthony Early, the cold-blooded threes by Ron Baker, and the pinpoint passes both in transition and in the half court by Fred Van Vleet. Everything about this game was entertaining, and unlike the Duke game back in 1992 which was similarly entertaining and similarly close, the Wildcats came out on top of this one.

I don't want to wax all hyperbolic like Dan Rubenstein does here (of course, that's part of his schtick and it works for him), but this was one of the most intense and amazing games I've ever had the pleasure of watching. If the Louisville game lives up to even 75% of this, no matter who comes out on top of the score, college basketball fans will be winners.
