Video: Did A Kentucky Male Cheerleader Try To Stop Cincinnati's Octavius Ellis From Returning To Play?

Kentucky male cheerleader appears to obstruct Ocatvius Ellis.

Kentucky didn't have a ton of trouble with Cincinnati Saturday afternoon, as the Wildcats cruised to a 12-point victory to become the first 36-0 team in history. But there was a bit of a controversial moment early in the second half, when a male cheerleader for the school appeared to impede Bearcats star Octavius Ellis from returning to the court. The cheerleader appears to hold onto Ellis as he tries to make his way back to the floor. Judge for yourself.

No, it didn't realistically matter when it comes to the outcome of the game. But it's still a bit odd.
