NEW YORK -- John Wall has played nine games for Kentucky. His latest was his best -- and the end of this one showed the freshman guard is as good as advertised.
O'Neil: Worth watching
Think John Wall is overhyped? ESPN.com's Dana O'Neil begs to differ, especially after his performance Wednesday against UConn. Story
• In the second meeting between the two programs, Kentucky evened the series at 1-1 and is three wins shy of 2,000 all-time.
• John Calipari has won consecutive meetings against Jim Calhoun after losing their first two showdowns (both losses came while Calipari was at UMass).
• Calipari's 9-0 start to his UK coaching career is second to Adolph Rupp's 10-0 start in school history.
• John Wall's 25 points were a career high and DeMarcus Cousins added the fourth double-double of his freshman year.
