VMI lost to Pittsburgh by almost 40 points a few weeks ago, but the difference between those Keydets and these is a monster night by Bubba Parham. The VMI guard was 10-16 from three tonight for 35 points, an incredible performance that had Kentucky fans tipping their caps.
“We all dream of playing in big arenas like this,” Parham said afterwards. “I’m blessed.”
Many of Parham’s threes came with Kentucky defenders right in his face. After one three went in with Parham falling down, all Quade Green could do was laugh.
“He was saying when I released it, ‘There’s no way that’s going in,’ and once it went in, we laughed it off and tapped each other on the behind.”
