Indiana Beats #1 Kentucky With Last Second Shot
Indiana’s Christian Watford sunk the game winner with just one second left on the clock and the Hoosiers pull off a 73-72 upset of the Kentucky Wildcats.
The Kentucky Wildcats fell behind Indiana late in the first half, but they were able to battle back within 1 point at the end of the half. Indiana wasn’t done though. They came out firing on all cylinders in the second half looking to upset the number one team in the country. At one point the Hoosiers were leading by 10, but Kentucky had a lot of fight left in them.
Unfortunately for the Wildcats, Indiana had a little bit more fight. With one second left on the clock Kentucky was leading 72-70 and was ready to celebrate another win, but Indiana’s Christian Watford hit a three that put Indiana on top for the win. That was Watfords 4th three of the game, and he led the team with 20 points. Kentucky was led by guard Deron Lamb with 19 points.
Only time will tell if Kentucky keeps that number one spot. Number 13 Kansas beat number two Ohio State 78-67 and number three Syracuse is currently (7:51pm) leading George Washington, so perhaps the Orange will take the top spot.
