Kentucky Beats Kansas

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!

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
