Phew, that was nasty. In one of the more frustrating games we’ve seen from this bunch, the Cats finally pulled past Morehead State, 81-70.
Archie Goodwin led the way with 28 points, with Poythress close behind with 20. Noel almost had a double-double with 9 points, 11 rebounds, 6 blocks and 4 assists. The Cats finally achieved some sort of rhythm towards the end of the second half, shooting 51.1% from the field.
The name of the game was fouls. There were 44 fouls overall, with two Morehead State players fouling out. Morehead’s foul trouble ultimately cut their run short, as the Cats pulled ahead towards the middle of the second half. Like BTI’s options at last call, it wasn’t pretty, but we’ll take it.
Drew will be by shortly with a recap. Go Cats.
