Fans celebrate win over Wichita State

The Cats now advance to the tournament's round of 32 where the Cats will once again face the Shockers of Wichita State.

Sources say the order to take down the video came from an employee of the Indiana Pacers, acting on a request from Wichita State, who cited the NCAA's rules on posting video during a game.

He had been there before. Gingerly, he made his way to the locker room.

Still, the loss felt all too familiar. It was a delightful shame - the great game that should have never been played. His competitiveness overtook all emotions.

The result extended Kentucky's winning streak to 13 and snapped Wichita State's 16-game winning streak.

"We came up one possession short", Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said.

Even though Wichita has raised their profile, and can now compete with lower high-majors on the recruiting trail as evidenced by Shamet, McDuffie, and Kelly, in general Marshall and his staff tend to focus on more under the radar kids. The Wildcats also almost lost a seven-point lead late in the second half and shot just 42 percent from the field.

"It entered my mind when they messed around with the ball, but I hadn't said anything", he said. "Right now, I've got work to do".

Because Marshall has never been at a high profile job, it is tough to know how his recruiting would translate to IN where the focus would nearly assuredly be on different kids.

Friday post victory over Northern Kentucky, Kentucky guards Isaiah Briscoe and Malik Monk said they were unfamiliar with the name "Shamet". They made one play more. Isaiah Briscoe, Mulder and Hawkins hit threes to give United Kingdom a 17-11 lead.

De'Aaron Fox responded with a drive and dunk for Kentucky ... With four minutes to go, Fox's steal and dunk set the tone for the terrific finish.

Shamet rushed up the court to challenge Fox - Shamet scored at the rim.

Malik Monk didn't break completely out of his shooting slump, but he hit two enormous 3-pointers for the 'Cats in the three-point victory.

Minutes after Monk's heroic play on defense, Adebayo put an exclamation point on the narrow victory when he rejected Landry Shamet's 3-point heave at the buzzer. Fox would also add a driving slam. It averaged nine blocks per game and averaged 35 defensive rebounds the first weekend. Wichita State was ranked No. 7 in KenPom (the premiere efficiency ratings in college basketball) but was deemed the 39th best team in the tournament and given that lowly No. 10 seed.

Regardless, thanks to the censorship that appeared to take place, this story has even more life today.

Adebayo timed the block perfectly, slapping the shot away with his right hand after Shamet scrambled to find an opening. Point guard Derrick Walton Jr. has missed seven of his eight shots and has a pair of fouls. He called it. It was clear with what we were supposed to do. It was fitting that Adebayo ended that game; I wrote last week that he's the key to unlocking Kentucky's title hopes.

"He showed how talented he was", Smith said. "We're not scared to play any team on this planet earth".

The victor of the game will advance to the Sweet 16 next Friday night in Memphis, TN.

Wichita State needed those heroics because of a few breakdowns, forgivable against most teams. Against the Shockers, he was 3 of 10 in 29 minutes.
