The Kentucky Wildcats were back in action on Sunday when the faced off with the Richmond Spiders, who will likely be an NCAA Tournament team.

Once again, the Cats were without returning sophomore Keion Brooks Jr. who is still out with a leg injury.

Right from the start, it was obvious that this was going to be a tough game against a good team.

Each team exchanged baskets throughout the half, but Kentucky held the early 8-7 lead over the Spiders.

However, each team would keep trading the lead. Despite Kentucky dominating the glass throughout the half, turnovers kept this one very close and the Cats led it 32-28 at the half.

The second half was much of the same as Kentucky built a 36-30 lead before Richmond stormed back to go up 39-36 with 16 minutes to play.

Late in this one, the veteran experience of Richmond started to take over as the held a 58-46 lead at the under 8 timeout.

Unfortunately, the Cats do not yet have an offensive identity and were unable to make the comeback as they lose this one 76-64.
