Nerlens Noel Aims to Break Anthony Davis’ Shot-Blocking Record at Kentucky

by August 28, 2012

Could Anthony Davis’ shot-blocking prowess at Kentucky really get surpassed this soon? Well, according to incoming Wildcat freshman Nerlens Noel, who some have already tabbed as the second-coming of Davis, that will be the case. Via “Analysts have tabbed Noel as a better shot blocker than Davis because of his leaping ability and knack for swatting shots with both hands, one comparison Noel doesn’t mind people making.  In his quest to create his own legacy, he wants to rewrite the records Davis set a season ago. ‘I’m going after that shot-blocking record,’ Noel said confidently. ‘That’s just something to motivate myself to keep playing hard on defense. You’ve always got to set a goal of what you want to accomplish, and I definitely want to go after that.'”
