Kentucky Wildcats 85 Penn St. Nittany Lions 47: Postmortem (Lite)

It was "Doron Lamb Day" in Connecticut.

I am decidedly under the weather today and saw neither the basketball nor football games, but regardless, here are some stats of interest from the basketball game as the Kentucky Wildcats (3-0) bested the Nittany Lions this afternoon in Uncasville, Connecticut by a count of 85 to 47.

Kentucky began the contest on a 16-5 run, and never slowing down, opened a 47-15 halftime lead.

Doron Lamb lit up the Lions for 26 points on 8-13 shooting, making 3-6 three-pointers on the afternoon, and connecting on six of his first eight shots.  Lamb added four rebounds and two assists to his line.

Terrence Jones nearly had a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds.  Jones added five assists, a career high.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who played 19 minutes, made 4-5 shots from the field (1-2 3-pointers), grabbed three boards and scored nine points.

Anthony Davis scored only three points, but he did grab six rebounds, and blocked three shots.

Marquis Teague continues to learn the point guard position, once again recording more turnovers than assists.  This day, two dimes and three turns.  Teague did, though, make all three of his long-range attempts and scored nine points.

Darius Miller was the first man off the bench, but failed to score in 24 minutes of action, although he did dish out four assists and snagged four rebounds.

Kyle Wiltjer, after playing only three minutes against Kansas, got on the floor for 28 minutes today, and took full advantage, scoring 19 points on 6-12 shooting (2-5 3s), claiming two rebounds, handing out three assists, and displaying his (unblockable) hook shot for all to marvel at with amazement.

Eloy Vargas, in only 13 minutes of play, snagged eight boards and blocked two shots.

Kentucky once again made over 50% of their shots, connecting on 28-53 attempts (52.8%) from the floor, and 10-20 three-point shots.  UK also dished out 19 assists and turned the ball over only 10 times.  The 'Cats held PSU to only 26.9% from the field (18-67) and 25.9% from long-range (7-27).
