I’m not sure there are words for what I just saw. After being up 21 points in the first half, Kentucky absolutely fell apart, letting Tennessee get within six at halftime. The second half was even worse, Kentucky unable to get into a flow thanks to foul trouble and poor rebounding. The Vols eventually won, 84-77.
The officiating was atrocious, and you’ll hear a lot about it tonight, but Kentucky was plenty bad all on its own. All of the Cats’ demons came back to haunt them; no presence inside, no offensive flow, nothing. Just Tyler Ulis trying to do it all.
We’ll have more throughout the night if you can stand it.
