Kevin Knox, after his 34 points which led UK to a great comeback win over West Virginia is the Yahoo Sports player of the week. 

Knox was 11 of 17 from the field.  He was the big key in UK’s comeback after being down 17 points.  Plus, he had 19 points against Mississippi State.

Knox had a great time playing in the tough atmosphere at West Virginia. 

"Yeah, I love atmospheres like, I love playing away games, I love going against people on the road," Knox said after beating the West Virginia.  "That’s something I love growing up, just other teams yelling, hyped, student section, all that."

"It’s just a big win. I mean, us freshmen, a lot of people doubted us coming into this game. The locker room was just crazy. There was a lot of jumping, hype, smiling and all that stuff. Cal was really happy for us. So, he’s just making sure we keep going up from here."
