Knight hits game winning shot to lift Cats

Kentucky freshman hits the game winning shot with only two seconds remaining.

Kentucky freshman Brandon Knight hit the game winning shot with just two seconds remaining in the game to lift Kentucky to a 59-57 win over Princeton.

The Wildcats were led by the upperclassmen. Darius Miller scored a game high 17 points. Josh Harrellson had a double-double, NCAA tourney style, by scoring 15 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. DeAndre Liggins scored 8 points and handed out 3 assists.

Kentucky's freshmen appeared jittery throughout the game, and played tight.

Knight's game winning shot was his only score of the game, although he did dish out five assists and only turned the ball over one time. Doron Lamb, still showing some ill effects from the sprained ankle, scored 7 points. Terrence Jones was the lone freshman to score double figures as he scored ten for the game, but was limited to two rebounds.

Kentucky advances to face West Virginia on Saturday. The game's time and channel will be announced later.
