Circus Shot By Kentucky's James Young Highlights Exhibition Win

Kentucky's James Young made a shot while jumping out of bounds for a loose ball that people will be talking about for a long time as the Wildcats defeated Montevallo 95-72.
Kentucky finished its exhibition men's basketball season Monday with a 95-72 win over Montevallo in Rupp Arena.
