On This Day in Big Blue History

In 2009 John Wall took the first step to putting Kentucky basketball back on the map.

After limping through two years of Billy Gillespie basketball, the BBN needed a significant statement game to let the world know, “We’re baaaaaack.” ┬áKentucky had been outscored by North Carolina 163-135 the previous two years, but these Cats were a different breed. ┬áKentucky exploded out to an early lead before beating the 10th-ranked Tar Heels 68-66.

In case you forgot how great John Wall was…

I could spend all day watching this on a loop.
