UK only led Loyola (MD) by six points at the half, but the Cats put the Greyhounds away in the second in dominating fashion. Kyle Wiltjer was the leading scorer with 24 points and Anthony Davis picked up his fifth double-double of the year with 15 and 11. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist also had a great game with 15 points, seven rebound and four assists. MKG is rushing to the airport now to catch a flight home. His mother is in the hospital. We don’t have any details but keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
The Greyhounds committed 25 personal fouls and sent the Cats to the line 37 times where they made 28, both season highs. We’ll have more shortly. Merry Christmas!
