Now THAT was a fun game to watch!
For the first time in a long time, the Kentucky Wildcats took a first half lead and they never looked back. Davion Mintz and Isaiah Jackson led the way with stellar first-half performances, while Keion Brooks and Jacob Toppin were the closers in the second half.
While there is still an uphill climb and, as Cal put it, the team may be running out of runway but the result today was fun nonetheless.
I went to the airwaves after the final buzzer and here is what was discussed:
- It’s always fun to beat Tennessee
- Which guys have improved the most?
- Is it as simple as shooting and Davion Mintz being the guy in big moments?
- The defense was stellar
- John Calipari’s postgame remarks
- What is the proper reaction to this season?
Since the game on Tuesday night against Texas A&M has already been canceled, there may not be any UK basketball until the Cats take on Florida on Saturday.
