End of Game
Already Louisville's leading scorer in NCAA Tournament games, Russ Smith also passed Pervis Ellison's mark for 20-point tournament games.
Julius Randle is the third freshman in NCAA Tournament history with double-doubles in each of his first three games.
For the second straight game, Kentucky's freshmen combined for 68 points. The previous contest was a win over a Wichita State team that boasted the longest single-season win streak in Division I history; this time it came over defending champ Louisville.
Julius Randle joins Greg Oden as the only freshmen with 15 points and 12 rebounds against a defending champ.
Julius Randle has 37 rebounds through three tournament games, one shy of the record by a freshman.
Kentucky has won its last 2 games because it has executed down the stretch in "clutch time." In the last 5 minutes with the score within 5 points, Kentucky outscored Louisville and Wichita State by 12 points. During the regular season, Kentucky was outscored by 13 points in those situations. In their last 2 games, the Wildcats are shooting 56 percent and haven't committed a single turnover in "clutch time."
