Early in the second half Kentucky was needing a lift against South Carolina — and Derek Willis provided it with a monster dunk over a South Carolina defender.
Willis, never one to show an abundance of emotion on the court, roared after he came down. So did teammates on the bench while Rupp Arena fans went berserk.
“How about Derek’s dunk? I mean, that was crazy,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said after the 85-69 win.
Willis had 12 points and seven rebounds, but it was that dunk that stood out.
