Knight lifts Kentucky to close win

Posted by Jeff Borzello

Louisville and Kentucky losing on the same day in the round of 64? That couldn’t happen, right?

Brandon Knight wasn’t having it.

The freshman guard hit a tough layup with 2.0 seconds left to lift the Wildcats to a 59-57 win over Ivy champion Princeton.

Knight finished with just two points, but he came up big when it mattered.

On Wednesday, head coach John Calipari stated, "You can't count on freshmen." It seems Knight proved him wrong.

I'm sure Calipari will accept the trade-off.
