De'Aaron Fox makes Kentucky Basketball history with triple-double vs Arizona State

New, comments

As great as the history of Kentucky Basketball is, the rare triple-double line is something only one Wildcat has ever had.

Chris Mills scored 19 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished 10 assists against Austin Peay in Freedom Hall on Dec. 27, 1988.

That’s it. That’s the only triple-double a UK player has ever had...until now.

Against Arizona State on Monday night, De’Aaron Fox recorded just the second triple-double in UK history. He did so with under five minutes left in the game, when he had 14 points 11 boards and nine assists.

Assist No. 10 came on a Malik Monk three-pointer in the final minutes to forever cement Fox in UK lore.

Congratulations to Fox on the honor, which should be just one of many he earns this season.
