After an incredibly-slow start, the Kentucky Wildcats kept pushing for a 71-59 win over the Missouri Tigers. Nick Richards excelled for the Cats, fouling out late in the second half with 21 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks and an assist in 29 minutes. Quickley led all scorers with (another) career-high game – he ended the game with 23 points.
Overall, Kentucky finished the game shooting 42 percent from the floor and 25 percent from behind-the-arc.
