Throwback Thursday: The shot that ended Kentucky-Indiana rivalry (VIDEO)


Christian Watford is the reason that Kentucky doesn’t play Indiana anymore:

Ok, ok, ok. You’re right. That’s probably oversimplifying things a bit, but the fact that Watford hit this buzzer-beating game-winner on Indiana’s home floor, a shot that sparked a furious — and dangerous — court storm and handed the Wildcats their only regular season loss of the 2011-12 season, certainly didn’t help matters.

Indiana wants to play a regular season series with the Wildcats on the home floor of the two schools. They want to play in Rupp Arena and Assembly Hall

John Calipari and Kentucky? They want to play on neutral courts, like Lucas Oil Stadium or Banker’s Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. They don’t want to play on someone’s home floor, not if they don’t have to. More fans for Kentucky, more money for Kentucky, less upset losses for Kentucky.

They don’t want Christian Watford to happen again.
