Long Island Blackbirds 75, Kentucky Wildcats (8) 104

Alex Poythress had a strong game against LIU-Brooklyn. - Andy Lyons

The Kentucky Wildcats showed improved rebounding and defense taking care of the LIU Blackbirds tonight.

It's nice to see improvement on the court, and the Kentucky Wildcats apparently saw a lot of it as they easily defeated the Long Island U. Blackbirds 104-75 tonight.

Thanks to the LIU Blackbirds for pushing Kentucky early with their fast-paced game. I can't really comment on how well or poorly they played, but I can express my appreciation for them coming to Rupp Arena and doing their best.

Since I didn't actually get to see the game, we'll have to do a postmortem by committee tonight. Those of you who saw the game can write about the good and the bad in the comments.

Now, I have to find something to eat. That shouldn't be too hard here in Las Vegas.
