WATCH: FULL Replay of Kentucky Beating Ohio State in 2011 Sweet 16

Here’s an easy way to let the nostalgia take over you.

The March Madness account on YouTube has just uploaded the FULL replay of Kentucky’s win over Ohio State in the Sweet 16 during the 2011 NCAA Tournament. Watch as Brandon Knight drills the go-ahead game-winner with five seconds left. Or, if you’re like me, watch as Josh Harrellson drills Jared Sullinger in the chest with a basketball.


Knight, Doron Lamb, Darius Miller, Terrence Jones, and Harrellson… 2011 seems like sooooo long ago.

In the two games prior, Knight had hit his first game-winner of the postseason in a win over Princeton before the four-seeded ‘Cats beat West Virginia in the second round. The Sweet 16 victory over the No. 1 ranked Buckeyes was one of the most exciting of the entire tourney. Kentucky went on to beat two-seeded North Carolina in the Elite 8 before falling to Kemba Walker’s UConn squad in the Final Four.

To this day, this is my favorite Calipari-era team.

    We forget how great Liggins was for us in that tournament run. God I miss this team

    Zach….no more details on who hit the winning shot. Some of us old guys can rewatch like it’s new and while we know the outcome, don’t recall the ‘how come’!

    JH, a kid who got the most out of his talent…..really a gritty team.

    That was basically a 6 man team. Liggins and Harrellson were the heart and soul. No fear!! Cal got way more out of that team than most coaches could or would.
