De’Aaron Fox admits he shouldn’t have been credited for that assist on his triple-double

screen-shot-2016-12-09-at-1-49-26-pm

Remember when the worst thing to happen to Kentucky basketball this season was De’Aaron Fox mistakenly being credited for an assist? Last week, some national media members discovered that Fox was credited for an assist than he shouldn’t have been vs. Arizona State, calling his triple double — only the second in Kentucky basketball history — into question. Officials at the Atlantis reviewed the tape and said they’re keeping the assist on the box score, but when Jerry Tipton asked Fox about it today, he said he watched the play in question afterwards and knew it wasn’t legit.

“Yeah, I saw it, I was like, how is this controversial?” Fox said, noting that it clearly wasn’t an assist. “It didn’t make sense to me, but they’re doing their job and they said it stands, so it stood.”

Even if they had decided to take his triple double away, Fox said he wouldn’t have been upset.

“I didn’t care. I’m not playing for stats. If it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen. Cal told me that night on the phone, I said I don’t care.”

Just more reason to go get another one, right?

    I bet LJ won’t admit that he shouldn’t be awarded the Heisman.

      I can’t wait to watch him break Quentin Snider’s ankles over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over. And over again.
