Final Stats In Win Over LSU
I don't want to be premature, but it feels like Kentucky has turned a page after that loss down in Columbia just a few days ago. They've earned back-to-back home wins over Louisville and LSU, and you can truly seem the team morale rise on each of their successes.
One of the most impressive things from tonight's game was the shooting that has skyrocketed compared to recently. They made their free-throws, they shot 51.9%, they had a decent clip from the three-point line (7/18), and most importantly, they MADE THEIR FREE-THROWS.
Jacob Toppin led the way with 21 points, doubling-down on his "breakout" performance this past weekend. Oscar Tshiebwe had 19 points and 16 rebounds and people hardly bat an eye to it. A lot of good things to take from these last two games as this team is starting their run on figuring this thing out.
