For a chunk of Kentucky’s second game in the Bahamas, the Cats got lost in the Bermuda Triangle.
After Tyler Herro buried a barrage of three-pointers, the Atlantis Imperial Arena lost electricity with two minutes remaining in the first half. The power outage prompted officials to end the half early, with the Cats holding a 45-27 lead over San Lorenzo de Almagro.
It took quite awhile to restore the power. In the meantime, Dan Dakich and Seth Greenberg ran kids in the stands through drills. Once the lights were finally restored, John Calipari was ready to return to action. The SEC Network was not. The first ten minutes of the second half could only be watched by those in attendance and Matt Jones Periscope followers.
During the TV blackout, San Lorenzo briefly narrowed UK’s lead, until Kentucky rediscovered their energy. Tyler Herro was incredible for a second consecutive night, scoring 22 points to lead Kentucky to a 91-68 victory over the Argentinians.
The Wildcats’ second game in the Bahamas was a bizarre, chaotic event; one that live in UK lore for years to come.
