It was a brutal loss last night for Kentucky as the Wildcats seemed like they would pick up a road win in the SEC, leading Georgia 62-56 with two minutes left in the game.
But the Wildcats went scoreless in those last two minutes and Georgia made a layup with less than two seconds remaining and broke a 14-game losing streak to Kentucky.
On a night where Brandon Boston put together arguably his best performance as a Wildcat, scoring a game-high 18 points to go along with seven rebounds, Kentucky couldn’t buy a three-pointer (1-13) and turned the ball over 17 times.
Now, Kentucky heads back to Lexington on a three-game losing streak, holding a 4-9 record and sits at 3-3 in the SEC, good enough for seventh-place in the conference.
Awaiting them on Saturday at Rupp Arena is an LSU team averaging 85 points per game that sits at 10-3 on the season with a 5-2 mark in conference play.
Freshman guard Cameron Thomas is the ninth-highest scorer in the country at 22 points per game and forward Trendon Watson averages 18 points/game for the Tigers. Junior guard Ja’Vonte Smart shoots three-pointers at a 46.4 percent clip.
Nothing about Saturday’s matchup seems easy, but Kentucky will need to pull it together and get a win in Lexington on Saturday. A jolt of momentum for this team is needed in the worst way possible.

Would be a nice addition, especially with the QB run game.
Could Eddie Gran wind up in Tuscaloosa?
