Remember When Malik Monk Dropped 47 on North Carolina

Some of the best Kentucky Basketball moments come against North Carolina. Either the Cats play their best games against the best opponents or they just really don’t like UNC. I like to think that both are true. So many great performances, but few stack up to a 103-100 win. And Malik Monk coming up just short of the all-time single game scoring record with 47 points made it that much sweeter. If only he could have dunked on Luke Maye.

Some of the best moments against UNC:
Tayshaun Prince 5 three’s to start the game capped off with the heat check of the century
– John Wall’s performance against his home state
– 2011 March Madness win to send UK to the Final Four
– Anthony Davis’ game winning block
– Ashton Hagans 9 steals
– And this:

I’m no basketball coach. I’m just blogger living in my mom’s basement. But how do you leave the guy with 44 points wide open with the game on the line? That’s like not putting a hand in Austin Rivers face with 1 second left and a 2 point lead… which UNC also did.
