I’m not sure if we’ve already named the quickies after Isaiah Briscoe before or not, but if we have, he deserves to have them again. His triple-double last night played a huge part in Kentucky blowing out Ole Miss 99-76. The sophomore guard had 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, including a countless number of lobs to Bam Adebayo, who threw down eight dunks.
We all know Briscoe is the leader of this team, and he gets it done on the floor in more ways than one. He showed that by putting up the third triple-double in school history, and the second one this season. Side note: how amazing is it that Kentucky has put up more triple-doubles this year than all other players in the program’s history?
