Kentucky freshman Brandon Knight grew up on Thursday, rebounding from an 0-7 start to the Wildcats’ first-round tournament game against Princeton to make the winning shot. He was playing so poorly coach John Calipari had to bench him, but at least he let his stud have the final shot and it paid off.
Between Knights running layup with two seconds left to Morehead State’s Demonte Harper’s three-pointer to upset Louisville and Matt Howard’s game winner for Butler, it has been one exciting first day of the tournament. It doesn’t get much better than that.Google+
