It was again a tale of two halves at Rupp Arena as the UK basketball team raced to an eleven-point halftime lead before being outplayed for a good portion of the final twenty minutes and escaping with a 75-70 win.

Freshman forward Alex Poythress, who was often been the subject of John Calipari’s postgame press conferences, returned to what Calipari called “Beast Mode”, scoring 20 points and grabbing 12 rebounds, including the final board with 1 second remaining.

Three other Cats scored in double digits as Archie Goodwin scored 15, Ryan Harrow scored 11 and Nerlens Noel finished with 10 points to go with his 8 rebounds and 6 blocks.
