Kentucky’s Anthony Davis Says Knee ‘Fine’
Early in the second half of Kentucky’s NCAA South Regional championship coronation, Baylor finally managed to give the Wildcats one heck of a scare.
Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, the best player in college basketball, was grimacing in pain and holding his left knee after getting fouled by Baylor’s Perry Jones III.
The injury doesn’t appear to be serious. Davis returned to the game 75 seconds later, and though he moved gingerly for the next few minutes, he strengthened as the game wore on and finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks.
“[My] knee is doing fine,” Davis said. “I just bumped knees with Perry Jones, and it started hurting real bad. But I knew my team needed me to play. I wasn’t going to sit out, especially with a trip to the Final Four [at stake]. All of us want to go to the Final Four. I knew I needed to come in the game and help my team out, so I decided to come in.”
