Final Stats In Win Against Arkansas

Updated: Mar 3

A lot of the Big Blue Nation may have been a little surprised at how close the game was today against a not-so-good Arkansas team. However, then again, we have seen this story unfold before. Kentucky would come off of a couple of good wins and then just as you think they have turned the corner we see some of this young team's faults come back to haunt them.


Whatever the case, the Kentucky Wildcats come out today with a very solid victory against the Razorbacks led by Eric Musselman. It was looking grim to say the least with under ten minutes to go in the second half when Kentucky found themselves down 81-88. Then as there were under seven minutes to go in the contest Kentucky found a weakness in Arkansas' defense.


Rob Dillingham and Zvonimir Ivisic were able to execute the pick-and-roll to perfection on a few different occasions, generating some offense. This either led to a layup for Rob or Zvonimir or a foul on one of Arkansas' crucial big men in which both Chandler Lawson and Trevon Brazile fouled out late in the game. This brought forth a much-needed energy boost to both the team as well as the home crowd. I have been to many games this season and this was by far one of the most energetic ones I've witnessed. Kentucky went on a tear from this point on and managed to outscore Arkansas 30-14 in the final six and a half minutes of play.


Here's the box score from the win over the Razorbacks.



Antonio Reeves once again led the Wildcats in scoring with twenty-two points on eight-for-ten shooting in only twenty-nine minutes played. However, it was definitely a team victory today as seven Wildcats were in double figures. Besides Antonio Reeves you had DJ Wagner with 19 points, both Aaron Bradshaw and Rob Dillingham with 15 points a piece, Big Z with 12, and Reed Sheppard and Justin Edwards with a respectable 10 points as well. The team as a whole shot 56.7% from the field and generated 54 points off the bench.


Kentucky moves to 21-8 on the season and 11-5 in conference play. The take on Vanderbilt this coming Wednesday night for the last home game of the season.
