The flagrant foul 1 designation applies to contact that is deemed "unnecessary" and it does not require an immediate ejection. Sports Illustrated

Former Kentucky player Eric Bledsoe, now starring for the Phoenix Suns, said on Sirius XM Radio that if there were a seven-game series between the two teams, “I would definitely take Kentucky.

But the Sixers’ Tony Wroten, who has been in the NBA since 2012, with Memphis and Philadelphia, told Philly reporters that there would be a different outcome. “They can’t beat us,’’ Wroten said, and then referring to Bledsoe, “He’s crazy.’’ NBC New York
