I’ve posted this video several times on this site and headed into a Sweet 16 matchup I think it’s the right time to post it again. I have argued this was the most dominant half of Kentucky basketball in the modern era. There are really only two others that compete: 1996 against LSU and 2015 against UCLA. But I would argue this was more dominant because this was in the Sweet 16 against a quality opponent and neither of those opponents were good at all.
Either way, I always enjoy watching this 1st half. Jamal Mashburn could have scored 40 points in this half if they wanted. And just the demoralization of Wake was almost sad to watch. Enjoy and hope for a similar performance on Thursday night:
