Your Women’s Basketball Team hit the road to take on those pesky Tigers down in Baton Rouge and squeezed out a close 64-60 win. But considering UK was without two of their top three scorers due to injuries, Rhyne Howard (leading scorer) and Taylor Murray, that’s a solid conference win on the road.
Just how close was the win? The game was tied at 56 with two minutes left, Jaida Roper scored a nice layup and pushed the Cats up by two. LSU came back and before I knew it it was tied at 60 with 30 seconds left. McKinney made a clutch three-pointer with about 20 seconds left, LSU missed a shot and that was pretty much game. I haven’t bitten my nails in two years, but the end of the game definitely made me think about it.
Maci Morris had a whopping 20 points and proved to be an unstoppable force for the Tigers. Looking at the box, you can see that it was pretty even all game long.
All in all, the Cats battled hard tonight and came out with a much-deserved win. The team has Sunday off but will be back in action at home against Mizzou next Thursday!
