Our Kentucky Wildcats played well today, they lost, but let’s not take away from their performance today. I think these kind of numbers get you to the Final Four.
The Wildcats shot 53.6% from the field and held Tennessee to 46.4% shooting. We out rebounded Tennessee 32-29. We had 17 assist to their 13.
Our Kentucky Wildcats played great. It hurt losing Reid Travis with 2:32 left to play, after he picked up his fifth foul. Kentucky was called for 16 fouls in just the second half, after being called for just 4 in the first. We traded twos for threes and allowed Tennessee to make 10 of them.
We move on the the NCAA Tournament now. If this team plays the way they did today, they are Final Four bound.
Here’s the full box score:
