Kevin Knox Leads Kentucky Past Davidson in 2018 NCAA Tournament

John Calipari Calls Out Coach K Hypocrisy When It Comes to Getting Zion Williamson

It's such an overlooked piece of history that not even Wildcats coach John Calipari knew about it until it was pointed out in the postgame news conference. The Wildcats from North Carolina fought back from a 10 point deficit twice but they ran out of gas at the end. On the offensive end of the floor, Davidson will need to spread the floor and move the ball quickly to get open shots. Junior guard CJ Massinburg scores 16.9 points and pulls down 7.3 rebounds a game.

But, he said, it would be nice to make one or two along the way.

"They made life for us around the rim on both the offensive end and the defensive end hard", Davidson coach Bob McKillop said.

Davidson got within striking distance in the second half, but Kentucky connected on 81.3 percent of its free throws (26-of-32) to hold Davidson at bay. With AP Photos.Kentucky topped Davidson 78-73 in the NCAA tournament despite failing to make a single 3-pointer. But with the game in the balance, Kentucky held Davidson scoreless for 2:21 in the closing minutes, a string of six straight misses that allowed the Wildcats to pull out to an 11-point lead and put the game away.

Davidson played within 36-28 on the boards.

Davidson was one of the final teams into the field after a surprise win in Atlantic 10 tournament, but the great offense we had seen in the past wasn't there for most of this game. The young Canadian came up huge down the stretch for the Cats.

Despite the streak ending, winning the game was the ultimate goal for the Cats, and they accomplished that mission.

Knox would hit two free throws and follow it up with a jump shot. "They go baseline, that's how they create three-point shots for themselves".

2nd - Most points scored (25, Kevin Knox) by a United Kingdom freshman in his NCAA Tournament debut.

PJ Washington followed Gilgeous-Alexander with 11 points, all of which came in the opening half.

The Cats finished 0-6 from beyond the arc and didn't take a three-point attempt in the final 8:46 of the game.
