The ESPN Gameday crew was on hand and Rupp Arena was rocking Saturday night as the Kentucky Wildcats bolstered their NCAA Tournament resume with a 90-83 overtime win over the Missouri Tigers in SEC action.
Goodwin did not score in the first half, but came alive for the Wildcats to score all 18 of his points after intermission.
In a tie game with a minute left, Pressey went coast-to-coast for a layup to put the Tigers on top. Just a few seconds later, Willie Cauley-Stein answered with a basket of his own to bring things even at 75. Neither team scored after that, giving fans the ninth SEC overtime period of the day.
In overtime, Kentucky held a two-point lead as Pressey brought the ball down the court for the Tigers with just under a minute left . Pressey then got caught in the air and turned the ball over and Missouri fouled to avoid the fast-break. Ryan Harrow converted on both free throws to put Kentucky up four and the Wildcats held on for the huge win at home.
