I think we were all a little bit worried after UK laid an egg at LSU, but the Cats got back on track tonight with a 77-61 win over Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Alex Poythress scored a career-high 25 points, followed by Jamal Murray with 21.
The first half wasn’t pretty — Poythress and Murray accounted for 31 of UK’s 38 first half points — but the rest of the team got in on the fun in the second. Isaiah Briscoe even rediscovered his jump shot, hitting 6-10 from the floor for 12 points. After a no-show in Baton Rouge, Marcus Lee was much better, coming close to a double double with 8 points and 11 rebounds.
More coming throughout the night. For now, celebrate good times come on!
