Tuesday night’s Most Valuable Player award goes to Bam Adebayo and that’s not even up for debate.
The Kentucky big man scored a team-high 22 points with a career-high 15 rebounds and three blocks. According to one Corey Price, Adebayo’s impressive stat line marked the first time a Wildcat had ever gone for 22/15/3 in an SEC road game. (Ever, as in program history.)
Afterwards, Adebayo told reporters in his postgame press conference, “I feel like I played great. We came out with a W, so I’m happy.”
It’s hard to imagine Kentucky winning that game without Adebayo’s dominance in the paint. He played an outstanding game when no one else did.
Put that in your mock draft, Chad Ford.
