In what was a classic “it wasn’t really ever as close as the score indicated” game, John Calipari and his troops knocked off Anthony Grant and his heavy starch in their final game before their GameDay appearance on Saturday. The Crimson Tide jumped out to a 11-4 lead early and would hold their final lead at 13-10. John Wall showed up early with a headband and contributed with a team-high 22 points and 10 rebounds. Boogie logged his seventh straight double-double with 16 and 13 and DeAndre Liggins added 8 and 7 off the bench as Kentucky earned their 23rd win, their most in a season since 2005. It wasn’t always pretty and it wasn’t their finest game, but they got the job done again, which is what it’s all about.
Now bring on the low down dirty snitches.
