This year, Kentucky Wildcats' center Nick Richards has been having by far the best season of his college career, putting up career-best numbers across the board. After a solid game against Louisville in which he scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Richards was so hyped he gave the crowd L's down to troll Kentucky's rival.

Richards has plenty of reason to be incredibly excited, as he played half of the second half and overtime with four fouls, and still managed to be a force at both ends.

Obviously, drawing four fouls that quickly is not ideal, but it has been pointed out that at least one of the calls was absolutely egregious.

Either way, after the Wildcats lost a few surprising games early in the season, coming out with a win against a ranked opponent at this stage is especially important for this Kentucky team as they near the start of the conference season.

Make no mistake, after the performance he had against third-ranked Louisville, Richards had every right to troll. That's why we love rivalries, and college basketball as a whole.
