Kentucky's Davis breaks NCAA freshman block record
NEW ORLEANS (AP)
Davis' record-breaking swat gives him 183 on the season. He rolled to help Terrence Jones against Kansas' Thomas Robinson and knocked the ball away with 8:01 left in the first half, but he managed to keep it in play where Darius Miller could grab the loose ball.
Marshall's Hassan Whiteside set the freshman record in 2010 with 182 blocks in 34 games. This is Davis' 40th game of the season.
David Robinson holds the NCAA all-time mark with 207 in 1985-86.
