The Wildcats got to honor Nate Sestina before the loss to Tennessee.

Jeremy Chisenhall - Sea of Blue

It was not a savory senior night for Nate Sestina. The Kentucky Wildcats’ graduate transfer forward was dealt a loss in his final game inside Rupp Arena Tuesday night, as the Wildcats fell to the Tennessee Volunteers 81-73.

UK led by as many as 17 points, but the Volunteers did not give up and eventually outlasted UK with a second-half surge.

UK got a solid performance from 3-point range, hitting six shots from deep and posting a 3-point percentage of 46.2%. The Wildcats also got quality contributions from their guards, as all three scored in double figures and Tyrese Maxey posted a team high 21 points. He was UK’s player of the game.

It still wasn’t enough, as John Fulkerson led the way for the Volunteers, posting 27 points and six rebounds.
