Huge freshman seasons are nothing new at Kentucky under John Calipari, but what Jamal Murray has done this year is still pretty special. He leads the team with 19.4 points per game, and today, he is having a record day at Vanderbilt. In the first half, Murray scored 21 points, a record for Kentucky under Calipari.
