It was a tough, hard fought contest, and the Cats prevailed 75-66. UK will get another shot at revenge as they move on to the semis to play Alabama at 1 pm EST.
The Cats didn’t play their best brand of basketball today but they kept Chris Warren in check for the most part with ball denial defense by Doron Lamb and DeAndre Liggins. Warren still finished with 20 but the Cats limited his shots at pivotal times in the game.
Speaking of Doron…. Lamb hit shots when they needed it most, he finished with 19 to lead the Cats. Miller (15-7), Harrellson (13-7), and Knight (17 including 7 straight points to finish the game) all pitched in with solid efforts as well.
We will have more on today’s game and tomorrow’s upcoming matchup against the Crimson Tide in a bit.
