The UK men’s basketball team was back in action last night, as the Wildcats defeated Boston 82-62. UK jumped out to an early 10-0 lead, but Boston would calm down and quickly bounce back and make things interesting throughout the 1st half. At the half, UK was up 40-33. The CATS would eventually wear down the Terriers in the 2nd half to come away with the win. Skal Labissiere led UK with 16 points and 7 rebounds, Tyler Ulis had 15 points and 6 rebounds. Alex Poythress put on a dunking show with 4 dunks in a short time period in the second half. Alex had his second double-double in a row with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jamal Murray finished with 12 and Isaiah Briscoe had 11 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. UK will be back in action on Friday, Nov 27 @ 5 PM vs South Florida. The game will be played at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
After snapping a five-game losing stretch with a 58-10 rout of Charlotte last week, Kentucky will return to action with its regular-season finale on Saturday, playing host to in-state rival Louisville at Noon ET at The New Commonwealth Stadium. UK will honor 19 seniors prior to the game in a special “Senior Day” ceremony. Kentucky totaled 415 yards rushing for its fourth-best single-game performance in UK history vs the 49ers. UK tailbacks Jojo Kemp and Boom Williams each had career days, with Kemp rushing for 165 yards and three TDs. Williams had a pair of rushing scores, collecting 140 yards on 16 carries.
UK and Louisville will be meeting for the 28th time, including each since 1994. The series is led by the Wildcats 14-13, with each team winning eight games in Lexington. The Cardinals have won four consecutive meetings in the series, including a 44-40 thriller in 2014. UK comes into Saturday’s game with a 5-6 record, UL comes in at 6-5.
