Remember during Kentucky’s comeback win over Arkansas when freshman Keldon Johnson was shooting a free throw and said, “I love you,” to someone.

Most thought it was a female in the crowd.

Not true, says Johnson.

“I was talking to PJ (Washington). So everybody out there thought I was talking to some girl, but I was talking to my teammate,” Johnson said.

Why did he do that?

“It was a tough game. Of course we were just coming back (from being 15 points behind),” Johnson said.

“I felt like he was a little down and just letting him know that we got his back, that I love him regardless of the situation that’s going on.”
