The Kentucky Wildcats entered Saturday in desperate need of a win as they faced off with the LSU Tigers in Rupp Arena.

The Cats got off to a great start as they built a 19-9 lead with just under 14 minutes remaining in the half.

The entire first half may have been the best half this team played all season, as they extended the lead to 32-17 at the under-8 media timeout.

The excellent half continued down the stretch while they logged the most points in a half this season, heading into the locker room with a 49-36 lead.

The start of the second half was rocky for the Cats, as LSU was able to cut the lead to 54-49 forcing Kentucky to take a timeout.

For the second game in a row, the Cats got a good performance from BJ Boston and he was the one that refueled the Cats after the timeout.

He delivered on a series of possessions allowing Kentucky to push the lead back to 64-51 with 10 minutes to play.

The Tigers would make one more run at it cutting the lead to 71-63 with just over six minutes left in the game.

However, the Cats were able to answer the call once again and took control of the game down the stretch on their way to an 82-69 win.
