Winning ugly is still winning, and that’s become of the style of play this UK team chooses on the road in SEC play.
As has been the case with nearly all of UK’s road conference games, this turned into a grind-out affair that the Cats struggled to close out, but did just enough to pull off a much-needed win.
And like many of these games have been, it was Isaiah Briscoe making huge plays down the stretch. The sophomore guard would finish this game with just 11 points, but he scored seven points in the last 4:24 to help seal the 67-58 win.
Malik Monk was the Cats’ leading scorer at 17 to go with two steals and a block. Bam Adebayo chipped in 14 points and seven boards.
Here is the final box score:
