While the Kentucky Wildcats were busy knocking Lonzo Ball and the UCLA Bruins out of the NCAA Tournament, Devin Booker dropped 70-points in a single game for the Phoenix Suns.
Booker’s scoring display was just the 7th 70-point game in the history of the NBA, and the first since Kobe Bryant scored 81 points in a game in 2006.
The former Cat is the only active NBA player with 70 points in a game.
This afternoon, the Basketball Hall of Fame decided it was necessary to place Booker’s historic game-worn jersey on display for the world to see:

Once again, congratulations to Devin Booker on the historic feat.
