Now THAT’S more like it. After a humiliating loss at Auburn, Kentucky bounced back in a big way tonight, beating Arkansas 80-66 in Fayetteville.
Skal Labissiere had a breakout performance, scoring 11 points and showing renewed confidence throughout the night. After getting the starting nod for only the second time this season, Derek Willis followed up a career game with another impressive performance, finishing with 12 points, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks, and one steal. Tyler Ulis led the Cats in scoring with a career-high 24 points, followed by Jamal Murray with 19.
Not only is this a big road win for the Cats, it’s John Calipari’s first win in Bud Walton Arena as UK’s coach. Before tonight, he had lost all three of his previous games in Fayetteville.
More coming all night…
