Preston Knowles Dunk Fail (Video)
UConn made history Saturday night when it pulled off the seemingly impossible: five wins in five days in the best conference in America. As expected, their game with Louisville came right down to the wire, thanks in large part to the three-point shooting of Preston Knowles which kept the Cardinals in the game. That same Knowles, however, may have had the most embarrassing moment of the night in the first half. Check out the Preston Knowles dunk fail video:
He had to have been fouled, right? Everyone assumed UConn guard Donnell Beverly clipped Knowles’ foot on the way up, until an overhead replay showed that he wasn’t touched. Just tired legs, maybe? That didn’t seem to be a problem for Kemba Walker (19 points, 3 steals) and the rest of the Huskies, who were playing in their fifth straight game as compared to Louisville’s third. UConn’s Big East tournament run has bumped them from a No. 6 seed to a No. 2 seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest edition of Bracketology, and they’ll certainly be a team to keep an eye on when The Dance begins.
