Despite only scoring two points, Nerlens Noel was the “difference maker” in the game, according to Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy. Noel had twelve blocks, which is the new single-game record at Kentucky. More so, he made several of those while he had four fouls, including one memorable block on a would-be dunk.
After the game, Murphy Holloway called him the best shot blocker he’d every played against, including Anthony Davis. Strong words from a senior who just set the Ole Miss all-time rebounding record tonight.
Cherish him, BBN.
