Monk’s 47-point game was the sixth best in UK history

monk-unc

Just how good was Malik Monk today? His 47-point performance tied him with Dan Issel for the sixth-most points ever by a Wildcat in a single game. It also set a new high for single-game points scored by a freshman.

Want more? Have a little more from UK’s postgame notes..

— Monk’s 47 points were the most a Wildcat has scored in a game since Jodie Meeks recorded the single-game record of 54 points at Tennessee on Jan. 18, 2009

— He’s the only player in the Calipari era to score more than 40 points in a game

— He became the eighth player in the Calipari era to eclipse 30 points

— He has reached double figures in all 11 games this season

— He scored 20-plus points for the seventh time overall and has reached that threshold in six of the last seven

— He’s the first player to score 10 or more in 11 consecutive games since Jamal Murray scored 10 or more in 34 consecutive games

— Knocked down eight 3-pointers and has made at least one 3-pointer in all 11 games this season

— He has hit four or more from long range in five games
