Well that was certainly an ugly basketball game to watch. It came down to the end, but Kentucky won what was basically a free-throw shooting contest in Nashville tonight, beating Vanderbilt 87-81. Forty-three fouls were called and 56 free throws taken.
Isaiah Briscoe led the way with a career-high 23 points off 10-18 shooting, along with 7 rebounds and 5 assists. De’Aaron Fox was right behind him with 22 points and 5 rebounds. In between whistles, Briscoe and Fox were basically Kentucky’s offense in the second half, attributing for 29 of Kentucky’s points in the second half. Malik Monk had a quiet night, but came through in the clutch, getting a crucial layup and hitting four foul shots in the final twenty seconds.
