Final Stats In Win Over Arkansas

It appears that Kentucky has survived their trip to Bud Walton Arena, just barely. In a game that the Wildcats didn't gain the lead until under 13 minutes in the second half, this in-conference matchup was a back-and-forth battle until the very final minutes. Thankfully, Kentucky found their offense in the last two minutes and capitalized on their lead, taking a four point game for essentially the entire night to the 8-12 range, winning by final total of six.

It was a rough shooting night that seemed to be a hangover from the South Carolina game. After setting their season-low in halftime points (25) last game, they re-set that in the very next game with 25 at the half. Antonio Reeves would have 10 of that.

HALF: Arkansas 26, Kentucky 24

The second half would get much better, improving from 29% from the field to a 43.8% clip and leaving the building with the win. Antonio Reeves would torch the home crowd in Arkansas once again, walking off the court with a team-high 24 points. There was no Rob Dillingham (illness), a returning Adou Thiero, and a limited (leg injury) Justin Edwards to shake up the lineup just shortly before the tipoff.

Here are the final stats.

Kentucky is now 15-4 on the season and 5-2 in the Southeastern Conference. They'll host Florida at home on Wednesday night at 8:00 pm.
