Adebayo led Kentucky with huge double-double

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.

    Drew, Bam had a great game, but please, consider the players guarding him before referencing the draft. The best thing that could happen development wise is for Bam to stay another year.

    Bam played great, yea the competition wasn’t great but keep in mind he was getting doubled nearly every time and finished most of his freethrows. Only bright spot of the game and the only player who showed up today.

    This was the Bam I was expecting most of the season, with all of the pre-season hype he got. Hopefully he goes on a rampage the rest of the season (assuming we continue to get him the ball enough).

      Agree and I’m not sure he’s got the “drive” to excel at the next level. Marcus Lee transferring hurt this team…
