The Wildcats struggled to put away the Crimson Tide for…well…for the entire game. Nothing could kill those pesky fellows, especially Travis Releford – he poured in his plethora of points all in the second half right when UK started their runs. Luckily, the poor free three shooting early on transformed into “ice water” shooting by Darius Miller and company. Teague and Davis all hit their free throws down the stretch to seal the win, as well. The highlight of the finish occurred when Anthony Davis rejected a Bama shot with Kentucky barely ahead in the finals fourteen seconds.
The home win-streak stays alive a bit longer. The Cats escaped with a 77-71 victory. Good bye, Alabama. You fought valiantly. It was nice of Trevor Lacey to stop by, though.
