“You cannot have fun if the other guy’s punching you in the eye,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said after Kentucky’s scare from the Gators on Saturday. “That is not fun. You have to be ready to punch before he punches you. If you’re getting licks in first, you’ll have a ball. It is fun! But if you come in that ring and all of a sudden your head is moving side to side and your chin, it ain’t fun.”
What is fun from a fan perspective is watching Andrew Harrison dish to the athletic freak that is Willie Cauley-Stein who punches a nasty dunk all over a freshman. That freshman was Devin Robinson who had a pretty forgettable 6 minutes which included 2 points, 3 turnovers and 2 fouls. Unfortunately 1 of those fouls is going to be replayed a million times today because it came on that nasty Willie dunks which deserves Dunk Of The Year consideration.
Willie finished the game with 13 points (his highest in 7 games), 5 rebounds but 0 blocks! That’s surprising because he needs just 67 more to be the all-time leader at Kentucky.

But if you just want to enjoy that dunk a little more than you will appreciate these pics.
