Nerlens Noel did not have a good night tonight against Florida. The Gators won 69-52 over Kentucky, and to add salt to the wound Noel suffered what looked to be a bad knee injury.
Noel blocked a shot on a fast
break, but landed awkwardly and went strait to the ground as his knee buckled. Noel screamed from the
floor in pain as trainers rushed onto the floor. His teammates
even had to carry him off the court. Noel is a possible 1st pick in the NBA draft, and everyone is waiting to hear the status of his injury. Noel came into the game averaging 10.6 ppg, 9.6 rpg, and 4.5 blocks per game. Check out the video below of the injury.
