11 blocks. I'm still amazed at the two blocked dunks with four fouls. Those were nasty as any since Patrick Ewing. (Who he reminds me of.).
If Kentucky can survive the rest of their SEC schedule with two losses, go to the finals of the SEC Tournament before losing again, they'll get a five seed, IMO.
And no one will want to play them in the tournament. Depending on their draw, they could very well do another Final Four.
Wiltjer's getting better and better by being tougher and tougher. Poythress is getting tougher too. Goodwin does't have to carry the team. Cauley-Stein comes back, Harrow continues getting better-- I'm telling you, this team could very well surprise.
I don't know where you get his body language sucks. Interested to know why you think that. To me, the guy plays hard all the time. Always hustling and diving for balls. He probably takes too many chances for steals if anything.
He broke the UK single game record for block shots last night with 12. If UK could play 40 games this season he would have a chance at Davis single season record. I hope he gets that chance because it would mean UK is in the finals.
