A Sea Of Blue: Kentucky Wins Ugly For A Change

Kentuycky blog A Sea of Blue has been talking recently about how the Kentucky Wildcats had been playing pretty basketball in the last few games. Tonight, they decided that was just too girly for them, I guess, and decided to get real ugly.

This was an interesting game tonight. Alabama played a zone, just as everyone else has done against the ’Cats, and it was a very effective zone, too. Kentucky struggled a lot in the post-up game, as the Tide were very diligent in double-teaming DeMarcus Cousins every time he touched the basketball. Cuz did a lot of passing out of the post, but he also turned the ball over quite a bit doing it, showing that, as good as he is, he has plenty of improvement left to make.

In the end, though, the Wildcats did just enough to win by a not-too-scary margin of 11 points.
