Well, that was something.
After falling behind by as many as seven in the second half, the Kentucky Wildcats were finally able to climb back and pull off a 71-59 victory over Southern Illinois. But it sure wasn’t pretty.
Freshmen Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson led the way with 15 points each, both adding four rebounds, as well.
Sophomore Quade Green wasn’t too far behind with 14 points on 4-8 shooting.
Freshman big man EJ Montgomery rounded out Kentucky’s double-digit scorers, finishing with 10 points (4-8 shooting) and seven rebounds.
Nick Richards had a near-double-double, finishing with eight points and a team-high 19 rebounds.
The rest of the group, however, put up some pretty horrible numbers.
Reid Travis finished with just six points, while PJ Washington added just three.
Tyler Herro and Ashton Hagans each finished with zero points
