NCAA: Kentucky rejects Wichita State's upset bid

Just before the buzzer sounded, Adebayo blocked Landry Shamet's 3 that would have sent the game into overtime. "She's going to tell me to keep playing hard and keep playing with my teammates".

Despite the epic contest, both teams said it won't have any bearing when they meet for just the second time in school history. Monk and Adebayo had blocked shots in the final 15 seconds to help United Kingdom advance with a 65-62 win. Adebayo added 13 points and 10 rebounds. "I travel with the team a lot, so I'm very excited to go to Memphis". Franklin wrote that Marshall heckled several Kentucky players, as well as Kentucky coach John Calipari.

"It entered my mind when they messed around with the ball, but I hadn't said anything", Calipari said. But these guys guarded it.

Because Marshall has never been at a high profile job, it is tough to know how his recruiting would translate to IN where the focus would nearly assuredly be on different kids.

According to Kennedy Hardman of WTVQ, arena security paid Lynn Marshall three visits during the game, and thought about having her leave but made a decision to be "delicate" because they knew Marshall was the head coach's wife. "I plan to tweet it again as I leave here". The thousands of United Kingdom fans in attendance collectively held their breath, but Adebayo only had one thing on his mind at first. They shot 41.8 percent but escaped the Shockers (31-5).

So far, the four Pac-10 teams have best represented their conference, winning eight of the nine games they've played so far (UCLA-Cincinnati ended after press time).

Shamet finished with a team-high 20 points, including 13 in the final seven minutes while directing a spirited WSU rally, but afterward he took full responsibility for the ineffective final attempt.

"For one I said 'ow, ' " Adebayo said. "I watched it after the game". I really didn't play well in the first half.

Junior college recruiting hasn't typically been a major focus at IN, but if Marshall were to get the job, it is very likely that he would continue to try and mine the talent at that level IN order to keep an older roster with more physically mature kids. Two blue bloods meeting like this after United Kingdom did what it rarely does: lose a home game in non-conference play. The Shockers took their final timeout with 55 seconds to play after Shamet's three cut Kentucky's lead to 63-62. Kentucky's 65 points was the lowest amount of points they've scored in a game this season, but they improved to 7-2 all-time in NCAA Tournament games played in Indianapolis.

You can get where Marshall is coming from, but nobody is disrespecting Wichita State either.
