meeks.jpgJodie Meeks set a Kentucky school record by scoring 54 points in the Wildcats' 90-72 victory over the Tennessee Volunteers last night.

He also nailed 10 three-pointers -- also a school record -- and finished with this unbelievable line score in daily papers all across the country:

54 pts, 8 rebs, 4 ast, 15-22 fg, 10-15 3pt, and 14-14 ft
The previous single-game high-water mark for points in a single game had been Dan Issel's 53 in 1970.

Considering all the stories tradition and Adolf Rupp's old school has, a very impressive feat by Mr. Meeks.
