Hey Gang...as promised, here's a recap of the Kentucky v Ole Miss game. As expected, Ketucky handled Ole Miss handedly, and move on to play LSU tomorrow. Here's the lowdown from ESPN.com...
Jodie Meeks scored 25 points and Patrick Patterson had 15 points and 14 rebounds today to help Kentucky stop a four-game losing streak with a 71-58 victory over Mississippi in the opening round of the Southeastern Conference tournament.
The Wildcats (20-12) advanced to Friday's quarterfinals against No. 20 LSU and kept alive their hopes of extending their streak of consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament to 18.
Mississippi (16-15) was outscored 35-20 in the second half, when Meeks had 15 points and Kentucky shot 54 percent from the field (14 of 26) and played stifling defense that forced the flustered Rebels into 11 turnovers.
Terrico White led Mississippi with 21 points, but only had six after halftime. David Huertas came off the bench to score 15 after not starting because of a bone bruise in his left foot.
And there you go...the Kentucky Wildcats advance!!!
Now, we are waiting for the Georgia Bulldogs (12-19) to take on Mississippi State (19-12). Mississipi State took the win the last time they met in January, and now they are going head-to-head again.
Who do you think will win...??? Drop us a line and let us know.
