NOTRE DAME STUFFS 'CATS 87-65
Top left: UK's Reggie Hanson battles Notre Dame's Scott Paddock (43) and Kevin Ellery (35) for a rebound. Hanson snared a team-high seven boards during the game, but got little help from the rest of the club as the 'Cats were dominated on the glass. Notre Dame outrebounded Kentucky by a 53-27 margin. Remarkably, the fighting Irish pulled down only two fewer offensive rebounds than UK did total rebounds. Paddock had 11 rebounds, second behind ND's LaPhonso Ellis who had a game-high 16. Ellery, a native of Springfield, led the Irish with 15 points and grabbed three rebounds.
Bottom left: Paddock goes up for a high-percentage shot: an uncontested dunk. Paddock was five for seven from the field and finished v/ith 10 points.
Bottom right: With a few minutes left and the game already decided, Paddock gets ready to give a "high 10" to Irish coach Digger Phelps.
