LSU tops Kentucky on controversial game-winning tip

What Kentucky must do to have a 2-0 week against LSU Tennessee

What Kentucky must do to have a 2-0 week against LSU Tennessee

Kentucky blew all but one point of an 18-point second half lead at Mississippi State Saturday before winning.

The shot was reviewed and upheld but some found it controversial and thought it should have been called for basket interference.

"Do you remember we lost in the Final Four (to Wisconsin in 2015 when United Kingdom was 38-0) when there was a goal, a shot clock violation and they said it was not reviewable and then they changed the rule to say, why would you want to lose a game on a shot clock violation and it's easy to go check?
" Calipari said. He said. "Well, this one easy to go check, too". Why would you not - why would that not be reviewable?

The validity of the buzzer-beating bucket that ended Kentucky's 10-game winning streak on Tuesday night is very much in the eye of the beholder.

A video replay showed potential goaltending by Bigby-Williams, but officials determined the basket was good before the buzzer and reviewed whether or not the basket was scored before time expired as opposed to potential offensive goaltending.

Kentucky freshman guard Immanuel Quickley, who played 21 minutes, wasn't going to add to any controversy.

You just hate to see it!

This is a lot of points to give a team that has the athleticism to give Kentucky a run for their money, however, Kentucky is looking pretty unstoppable as of late and as Kentucky has won by at least 8 points in each of their 4 conference home wins, including a recent 28-point victory over SC, I'm going to roll with Kentucky to cover this spread. "There were a couple seconds left, so I went to the glass and tried to make something happen".

Tremont Waters, who finished with 15 points to lead the Tigers, hit two free throws with 20 seconds left to give LSU a two-point lead before Johnson's free throws tied it.

"So, we feel like it's on us". That was big for us, and we didn't get the job done.

The Tigers have covered the spread in six straight road games and they are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 conference games.
