Washington, Hagans celebrate: “He put it on his head”

Cameras caught the Kentucky bench celebrating two late Nick Richards dunks by patting the top of their heads. PJ Washington and Ashton Hagans were the stars of the bench shot, but the entire team was participating in the head-tapping.

When asked about the celebration after the game, Washington said,  “He put it on his head. I mean, he did it two times in a row,” referring to Richards’ back-to-back dunks in the final minutes of the win.

“We’re just happy for him because he’s worked so hard in practice everyday and to see him do something like that is really special,” he added.

Richards finished with a season-high 14 points.

Here are two more clips of the celebration:

    It’s a real shame our team is so shy and has no personality….

      I don’t think “putting it on his head” referred to the dunk; it referred to the pass from EJ.

      When I saw it live I thought it was because Nick put his head at the rim.
