Yesterday morning, reporters discovered that De’Aaron Fox was mistakenly credited with an extra assist Monday night, calling into question his triple-double, only the second in Kentucky basketball history. Upon further review, officials at the Atlantis have determined NOT to change the initial box score, keeping Fox’s triple-double intact. Per Kyle Tucker:
“We certainly appreciate the attention to the issue regarding the stats of De’Aaron Fox,” said Bill Coteron of the Atlantis. “After careful consideration, we have determined that no changes to the initial box score will be made. Due to the fast-paced nature of the game, we felt the credit applied in-game was valid. We regret that this was brought into question and certainly hope it doesn’t take away from his outstanding MVP performance.”
Now, go out and get another one to shut up the haters for good, De’Aaron.
