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.
