Devin Booker, you’re tonight’s MVP.
The freshman guard set career highs with 15 points, seven assists and four rebounds in the win. He was the star in the second half that pushed Kentucky to pull away from a Boston team that wouldn’t die. Back-to-back jumpers stand out and, of course, the four or five lobs to backdoor cutters for dunks.
After the game, Cal said, “Devin had seven assists, a bunch were in the zone where we’re throwing that lob. And when he makes shots, we become a little bit different.”
Shooting wasn’t a problem for Booker tonight, something that can’t be said of his last couple times out. He said Cal told him to keep firing and they knew it would eventually turn around.
Great game from Booker. (It’s almost like someone predicted it on the KSR pregame show.)
