Even when the shots weren’t falling, James Young didn’t give up.
Young didn’t score a basket in the first half of third-ranked Kentucky’s 68-61 triumph over Cleveland State Monday night at Rupp Arena. He was 0-4 from the field in the first 20 minutes but came through in the second half. Young finished with nine points, grabbed five rebounds, had three assists and a block.
More than his clutch three-pointer late in the second half that helped spark Kentucky’s successful rally, Young’s movement without the ball served as an example for his teammates to follow down the stretch.
