Kentucky beats Harvard, 79-70

12/02/2017 05:32 PM

In their last game, Kentucky played what John Calipari said was their most complete effort of the season. Against Harvard on Saturday, it was a different story. The Cats walked away with a 79-70 win over a team that will likely be in the NCAA Tournament, but Calipari said the Cats struggled to make “winning plays”.

Kevin Knox led the team with 20 points and tied Nick Richards for the team lead in rebounds with 7. Richards also added 9 points. Hamidou Diallo (19 points, 6 rebounds) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (12 points) also scored in double digits for Kentucky.

UK’s next game will be Saturday against Monmouth in New York.
