We’ve seen a lot of great performances by Kentucky freshman in the Calipari era. A few that come to mind are John Wall’s 25 point game against UCONN at Madison Square Garden back in 2009, Malik Monk’s 47 point game in Las Vegas, and most recently Tyrese Maxey’s 26 point game last night at Madison Square Garden against Michigan State.
Even though Monk set the record for most points in one game by a freshman at Kentucky, last night’s performance for Maxey came in his first official game, against the #1 team in the country, at a historic place like Madison Square Garden.
Many big names were at the game, and even more people weighed in on Twitter.
