This Day in History: 2010-01-02
On January 2, 2010, freshman DeMarcus Cousins scored 18 points and matched a season-high with 18 rebounds to lead No. 3 Kentucky past rival Louisville 71-62. Freshman John Wall scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half as the Wildcats (15-0) matched their best start in 40 years by breaking a two-game losing streak to the Cardinals. This would be the first of four consecutive victories for Calipari’s Kentucky team over Pitino’s Louisville program.
