It wasn't always a thing of beauty, but Kentucky beat a decent Kansas team 75-65 tonight in Madison Square Garden in New York. While the Cats slugged though the first half, good defense and a few timely threes by Doron Lamb allowed the Wildcats to break open a tie game at the half and build as much as a 17 point lead on several occasions in the second half. The game was not as close as the score would indicate.
On a side note, congratulations to Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski who passed Bob Knight on the all time wins list with with his 903rd victory. Unlike most UK fans, I have always found coach Krzyzewski to be a class act and one who stays out of trouble with the NCAA. Congrats go out to Coach K AND to ob Knight.
i'll have more on the win over Kansas tomorrow as we start to look ahead to the weekend's games. Until then, GO CATS!
