GIF: Navy’s Will Kelly Absolutely Destroys An Army Player With A Nasty Blocked Shot

The Army-Navy basketball game doesn’t carry quite the same weight as Army-Navy football, but based on this highlight, the two teams are going just as hard on the court as the programs do on the field. 6-foot-9 Navy center Will Kelly is having a huge defensive game, with eight blocked shots early in the second half. None was more impressive than this one, which just destroys an...
