It says a lot about UK’s performance tonight that even when the game was technically within reach, it really wasn’t. The Cats turned in one of their worst performances of the season in Baton Rouge, losing to LSU 85-67.
Where do you start? Marcus Lee, Skal Labissiere, and Isaac Humphries all got into foul trouble early, leaving UK with few options inside. The rest of the team wasn’t much better, shooting a paltry 32% from the floor in the first half. Jamal Murray tried to keep it close in the second, scoring 17 second half points, but it wasn’t enough, and that’s with Ben Simmons only scoring 14 points.
Anthony Davis’ reaction says it all:
More coming all night…
