    NEW YORK — From his seat in Section 85 in the lower level at Madison Square Garden, Nets President Rod Thorn had a bird’s-eye view of every John Wall electrifying steal, jab step and thunderous dunk on Wednesday night.
     
    Wall scored 19 of his game-high 25 points in the second half, including a game-winning three-point play in the final seconds, to lead No. 4 Kentucky to a captivating 64-61 come-from-behind victory over No. 14 UConn in the SEC/Big East Invitational before a crowd of 15,874 at Madison Square Garden.
     
    Wall had six steals on the night, twice as many as UConn’s entire team.
