Kentucky-Mississippi State: A Closer Look

01/18/2017 07:30 PM

Kentucky pulled out an ugly win in Starkville last night, beating Mississippi State 88-81 to remain perfect in the SEC.

The fifth-ranked Wildcats struggled to stop Mississippi State, who shot 54% from the floor and outscored Kentucky in the paint 54-42. John Calipari was frustrated with his team’s play after but also realized that this was a tough road environment for his young team.

So, what can this young team learn from last night’s close win? Former Cat Mark Krebs and TJ Beisner discuss.
