Hunter Dickinson makes statement with historic performance against Kentucky
KU needed to finish the first half on a positive note. Despite starting the game on the front foot, Kentucky went on a huge run which could have seen KU head into the locker room down by double-figures. The Jayhawks got their chance to end the half well and they turned to the guy who had made plays throughout the opening 20 minutes in Hunter Dickinson. With just under five seconds left, he set a screen for Dajuan Harris and both defenders followed him anticipating a drive and kickout. Dickinson settled at the top of the key when the pass came from Harris and he drilled a three to make the deficit smaller. And he let his big personality show after the play that ended up matching his big game.

Per the original press release: "Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored." One of the biggest criticisms that Star Wars has faced in recent years is that its productions have been too reliant on nostalgia and old characters, afraid to explore something entirely new.
