Kentucky’s upset bid in Tuscaloosa fell short in a game that it seemed like Kentucky could’ve (and maybe should’ve) won down the stretch, but ultimately, the Cats fell 70-59.
And now, the Wildcats move forward to a matchup with the Texas Longhorns, who came into last night ranked #5 but were upset by Oklahoma 80-79.
Of course, it was a weird night for the Longhorns as Shaka Smart couldn’t coach the game due to contracting COVID-19, and the Longhorns were without two starters, as well as one of their key reserves.
The Longhorns are still among the best teams in the country, so Saturday is a tall task for this Wildcats squad.
Of course, one of the key players on this Texas roster is a former Kentucky recruit, Greg Brown. Brown is averaging about 12 points and 8 rebounds per game, to go along with 1.4 blocks.
Kentucky will be an underdog going into this game, and a win on Saturday would be huge for this team moving forward.

Ummm.. who’s gonna tell him?
Lack of offensive execution again.
Schilling, Bonds, and Clemens all fall short.
Some big names could be available.
This is pretty odd.
AD reflects on Kobe, the Lakers, etc.
