UK Freshman Malik Monk Drops 47 Points In Win Over UNC

University of Kentucky freshmen Malik Monk had a monstrous first half that he followed up with an enormous second half against the 7th ranked UNC Tar Heels. All-in-all Malik Monk dropped 47 points; the most by any D-I college basketball player in the season. Not only did he drop 47 points but he did it against a Top 10 team while leading his team to the W! Monk set the UK freshman single-game scoring record in the 28th 40-point game in UK history. To put it in perspective, Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) noted that Robert Morris only had 39 points in a loss at Virginia.
