Video: Kentucky freshman nearly injured after failed dunk attempt


College basketball is to the University of Kentucky as peanut butter is to jelly. UK fans love their Wildcats, and the school's annual Big Blue Madness event is certainly testament of that. Hundreds of fans pitch makeshift tents and camp out in an effort to score tickets to the glorified first day of practice, which isn't until Oct. 12.

As a way of showing their appreciation, head coach John Calipari traditionally has his players deliver donuts to campers and play pickup games with the fans. But Coach Cal may have to tweak the latter after the scary incident that unfolded Thursday night on Kentucky's campus. Seen in the video above is UK stud freshmen Nerlens Noel crashing to the ground and landing flat on his back after a failed dunk attempt. Luckily, Noel nor the guy he landed on were injured, but the fall definitely struck a wave of panic to the diehard fans in attendance. Noel figures to be a key cog on a team that's expected to contend for a second straight national title.

Breathe, Kentucky fans. Just breathe.
