The Kentucky Wildcats get back to their winning ways with a win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs, 80-72.

This game was dominated by Nick Richards and EJ Montgomery as the two combined for 39 points and 19 rebounds. Richards had two points going into the second half and looked like he would continue his struggles against good big men. He would then put up 25 second-half points and took over the game.

EJ might have had his breakout game tonight, as well. EJ looked like he was comfortable on the floor and played with a sense of confidence. Let’s hope he has turned the corner, much like Nick did earlier in the year.

Kentucky heads to Knoxville on Saturday where they haven’t won since 2015.
