Kentucky outlasts Louisville 58-50 in one of the most physical, ugly games that I have seen so far this season. Holding the Cards to 26% shooting for the game is just another sign of how good Kentucky's defense really is. The Cats out rebounded UofL 46-33, but did give up 17 offensive rebounds to the dirty birds. Kentucky moves to 13-0 on the season with today's victory.
Kentucky didn't attempt a free-throw until the second half going 10-14 and they needed every single one of them to get out of the !Yum Center with the W.
Just to give you an idea of how physical this game was, Tyler Ulis got opened up in the first half by an accidental elbow...
The cut didn't phase the freshman however as he went on to lead the Cats to the W with 14 points going 5-8 form the floor and 2-4 from deep. Tyler made the difference in this game on both ends of the floor. Kentucky's offense just ran a lot smoother with him on the floor.
At the end of the day, it was a good game and one Kentucky actually needed in the long run. It was their first true road game in front of a hostile environment and it had little effect throughout the course of the game.
Also, I bet the parents of the girl in the photo below is so proud... Stay classy Cards.
