Kentucky's Hamidou Diallo has serious bounce, and the Buffalo Bulls learned that the hard way in the first half of their 95-75 loss to the Wildcats on Saturday at Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho.

After Kentucky guard Quade Green misfired on a three from the right wing, Diallo came soaring in and posterized a pair of Bulls defenders with a huge one-handed slam.

Diallo finished with 22 points (9-of-12 shooting), eight rebounds and a pair of blocks in the rout.

The fifth-seeded Wildcats will square off against either No. 16 UMBC or No. 9 Kansas State in one of two South Regional semifinals Thursday.
