Kentucky May Have Lost, But They’ll Always Have This Monster Dunk from James Young (GIF)
The UConn Huskies may have won the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship last night, but it was a Kentucky Wildcat who gave us the play of the game—and maybe even the tournament.
With Kentucky trailing 48-39 midway through the second half, they were in desperate need of a spark. That’s when Kentucky guard James Young blew past UConn guard Terrance Samual at the top of the key, drove the lane, and posterized center Amida Brimah with a thunderous monster jam.
Take a look:
As you can see, Brimah actually got his hand on the ball, but Young just moved right through him like a bulldozer. After that, the Wildcats got pumped up and went on an 8-0 run that got them to within one point of the Huskies.
Of course, that was as close as Kentucky would get.
