UK Hoops kicked off their two-game SEC road game weekend with an impressive 55-42 win over LSU.
The Cats started off strong going on a 12-0 run in the first quarter, LSU seemed baffled by the Cats man-to-man defense style – the Tigers didn’t score their first points until 12 minutes into the game. At halftime, UK Hoops only lead by 7 points but, they came out ready to play in the second half and broke down LSU’s defense, especially Senior Evelyn Akhator. Akhator lead the Cats to victory with 20 points and 11 rebounds – yes, ANOTHER double-double for Akhator.
But, the real story of tonight is Sophomore point guard Taylor Murray. Murray earned a double-double tonight with 11 points and 13 rebounds (she also had five assists – so yeah, she’s impressive). This is a HUGE road win for the Cats. Not only is this their first win at LSU in seven years but,, it also gives the Cats momentum looking ahead to Auburn on Sunday afternoon.
Matthew Mitchell and your girls return to Memorial next Thursday night at 7 to take on Ole Miss.
