The evolution of Malik Monk

02/15/2017 06:12 PM

One of the things John Calipari has talked about quite a bit in the past few weeks is getting Malik Monk more involved on the boards. Last night it looked like it finally paid off.

Monk pulled down a career-high eight rebounds last night and helped set an early tone for Kentucky’s dominance on the glass. The eight boards last night matched his total for the last five games combined. It’s a small sample, but Monk may be turning a corner toward becoming more of a complete player.
