His 14 assists set a UK Freshman record. Kid is sick.
Is the Liggins situation strange to anyone else? Of course, they aren't really missing him. But it may have allowed Cal to get Wall out of the game with more than 2 minutes to go in the game. Then again, Patterson was still in there also.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
Wall did set out a big chunk of the 2nd half. He went out around the 11 minute mark and came back around 3 minute mark. I was a little surprised he came back in but we wouldn't have seen that great left handed dunk if he hadn't.

I think it sounds possible. If he wasn't allowed to come back at all, wouldn't he just be off the team all together?
Great story about John Wall. He seems like a very level headed kid who has things in the proper perspective. He won't be at UK long so all of us UK fans had better savor every moment he has at UK.

Great read! Thanks for sharing the link!
Not a UK basketball fan so today's game is the first time I've watched them.
I've been hearing the Wall hype, and just from watching the first half all I can say is......WOW. This kid is going to be special.
Kentucky showing why it's great, then why it's overrated in the same game. Youth may be served, but it's usually only served after a heaping helping of experience mashes it in the face.

Today's game with UNC looked like a bunch of talented, inexperienced freshmen playing against another bunch of talented, inexperienced freshmen.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
todays game looked to me like it exposed UK quite a lot. It's John Wall and some solid players who don't know how to do a lot without their leader, yes their freshman leader.
Don't take that as a slam on UK, I'm a fan no doubt, its just what I saw.
