94-feet: Right place, right time for Erik Daniels

In my 94-feet feature for, I take a look at the UK vs. MSU series history, as well as the series superlatives and Kentucky's SEC-only stats. In addition, I recount UK's 2004 win in Starkville, a game decided by a last second basket by UK's Erik Daniels. Here's an excerpt:

With Kentucky being undersized in the middle, MSU began the game with single coverage of UK's post players, Hayes and Daniels. The tactic allowed UK to spurt to a 10-2 lead by the first media timeout. When the Bulldogs started giving help on post catches, UK's shooting took off.

Behind two treys from Fitch and forward Bernard Cote's NBA range 3-pointer, followed by 7-footer Lukasv Obrzut's 3-pointer, his first basket in nearly a month, the Cats were off and running to an 18-point, 35-17 lead.
