Matchup Video: De'Aaron Fox vs UCLA (Part Two)

Julian Applebome takes a closer look at Kentucky freshman point guard De'Aaron Fox's 39-point, 4-assist, 3 rebound performance against UCLA in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. The projected top-10 pick dominated the game from start to finish, looking incredibly aggressive offensively and outplaying potential #1 pick Lonzo Ball.

After losing their first matchup against UCLA on their home court in December, Kentucky got the upper hand on a neutral floor in Memphis this time around, in no small part due to Fox's tremendous performance. Fox showed his outstanding speed, body control and new-found scoring mentality all game long attacking UCLA's defense and finishing with floaters and layups at the rim, as well as getting to the free throw line 15 times. He didn't make a single 3-pointer, and wasn't looking to playmake much for others, but the fact that he was able to carry Kentucky offensively in such an important setting will likely resonate greatly with NBA talent evaluators considering what was at stake.
