Monk re­bounds

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE BASKETBALL -

Ken­tucky guard Ma­lik Monk, the for­mer Ben­tonville High School stand­out, bounced back from a three­p­oint first half against Florida on Satur­day to score 30 points in the sec­ond half of the Wildcats’ 76-66 vic­tory over Florida to surge into sole pos­ses­sion of first place in the SEC stand­ings.

Monk is on track to be­come the fourth fresh­man to lead the SEC in scor­ing and the first since LSU’s Chris Jack­son did it with a 30.2 scor­ing av­er­age in 1989.

Monk is av­er­ag­ing 21.5 points per game, just ahead of South Carolina’s Sin­dar­ius Thorn­well (21.0).
