On Sunday, no one was happier about Kentucky beating Wichita State than Bam Adebayo’s mother, Marilyn Blount. After the game, Bam’s mom was asked how she thought Bam did in the wake of Darral Willis Jr.’s vow to “shut that down,” and she let loose in a video I really hope you’ve seen by now.

This afternoon, I had to ask Bam about his mom’s viral moment, and he laughed.
“You know, I’m just glad she was excited that we won. She loves all of us, she was just out there having fun.”
And no, you don’t need to worry about Blount having a LaVar Ball moment when it comes to her son.
“She knows what to do. She just leaves it alone, I don’t have to tell her or anything.”
