America, meet John Wall: Kentucky outlasts North Carolina

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Kentucky Wildcats' freshman phenom John Wall had his coming-out party on national television this afternoon as he helped his fifth-ranked team to a home win over North Carolina, 68-66.

Wall scored 16 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished out 7 assists -- just the kind of performance that showed why he was such a highly-touted recruit. He missed some time in the second half due to a cramping issue, but was able to return and help the Wildcats stave off a Tar Heel rally.
