Cats squeak past LSU in OT 77-76

(click to enlarge)

Damn.... After an impressive game against Ole Miss, Kentucky has to win a squeaker in OT against LSU. Both teams were needed a win for their post season resumes and you could tell by how they played.

It was a battle from the very tip with LSU rushing out to a 6-0 from three straight buckets by big man Johnny O'Bryant who finished the game 20pts and 12rebs. Kentucky native Anthony Hickey was also a thorn in the Cats' side as he finished the night with 20pts 8ast and lucky for the Cats, Hickey fouled out in the overtime period.

For Kentucky, it was good to see them finally win this type of game after losing so many during the course of the season. They fought, scrapped and showed a will to win something that has been developing the last couple of games.

It wasn't the prettiest of wins, but one they COULD NOT afford to lose at home.

Now, go and enjoy the rest of your weekend....
