After winning at Rupp in game one and game two,
The Cats headed to Vegas - and were followed by Tru ;)
Kansas State was up first in our Vegas showdown.
The crowd made them feel like they were in our hometown!
The first half was great. Meeks played like a dream!
Going in at the half, he had outscored their whole team!
The second half was different, and not in a good way.
K-State was coming back. They had turned up their play.
Their shots started falling. Their defense got mean.
Soon they were back from being down seventeen!
Coach G went to Liggins to come into the game
Who stayed in his seat saying, "Thanks all the same."
But the Cats scratched and clawed and won according to plan
WIth Meeks our "High Roller" and Billy G. our stickman.
A close win by two and 20 hours gone by,
It's the Cats and the Mountaineers coming in off a high.
So, we won by two and they crushed their opponent.
A win here makes us champions so we need to own it.
The game started out, our Cats came out slow.
Our turnover total, continued to grow.
Bad pass by Porter. Harris gets stuck.
For being in Vegas, we arent having much luck.
Both teams playing sloppy, struggling to score.
We'd get in a few shots, but they'd get a few more.
Down by 10 at the half - Will the Cats win???
Hell yeah - this is Vegas! Now, hit me again!
Somewhere in the second half, we decided to play
With sophomore Josh Harrellson leading the way!
Pat Patterson, double-double in the City of Sin
And tonight even Liggins agreed to come in!
They dug in and fought. Our team scored at the line
And since Huggy Bear's couldnt, the score realigned.
Nine minutes to play and we take the lead!
A roar goes throughout the great Big Blue sea!
54-43, Kentucky is the winner!!!
Champions in Vegas - Winner winner, chicken dinner!!!
