Before the season even started, we dubbed Kentucky’s starting backcourt of De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk as “The House of Highlights.” The two freshmen are already justifying the hype and that was proven again during a blowout win over Cleveland State.
It’s all on display in this sequence from the first half. You have Monk’s shooting ability showcased with a deep three-pointer, one of four he hit on the afternoon. He also get to see both players’ electrifying ability in transition as Monk picks off the pass and lobs it off the backboard to Fox for an incredible alley-oop.
Monk went off for 23 points in the win, while Fox put up 16 points and 11 assists.
