The Kentucky Wildcats held their final exhibition game tonight as they hosted the Montevallo Falcons, a Division II team who gave the Cats a run for the money. The Falcons trailed by just nine points late in the game after a second-half run that was actually sparked by Kentucky.

UK freshman sensation James Young was just trying to make a hustle play and give his team the possession on a loose ball. Instead, he somehow sunk a 3-pointer for the Falcons:

The only question now is if this will be on SportsCenter as a Top 10 play or a Not Top 10 play?

The Wildcats would go on to win the game by a final score of 95-72. Young ended up scoring 16 points in the game, but the one he scored for his opponent is what everyone remembers. UK opens the season with Friday at 7 p.m. against UNC Asheville.
