Kentucky basketball loses at Alabama to start SEC play

Outside of a rough season opener against Duke and a last-second loss to Seton Hall, this team has all the makings of a contender.

The Tide responded to the energy created by the almost 13,000 fans in attendance at Coleman Coliseum, helping Alabama (10-3, 1-0 SEC) snap a 10-game losing streak in the series against Kentucky (10-3, 0-1). Kentucky had a modest three-game winning streak come to an end.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Jordan Bowden scored 20 points off the bench as No. 3 Tennessee opened Southeastern Conference competition by trouncing Georgia 96-50 on Saturday for its eighth consecutive victory.Tennessee recorded the most lopsided triumph in this series' 146-game history, surpassing a 105-69 Volunteers victory from February 1, 1975. "We just sort of clawed and gave ourselves a chance".

This being the first time that the Wildcats have travelled to Tuscaloosa in a while, Alabama fans came out in force. Former Kentucky standout John Pelphrey serves as an associate head coach to Johnson. "We needed to beat Kentucky". But this was a huge win for us. The Wildcats used pressure defense and timely shots to trim the lead to two, but their final three-point attempt at the buzzer was off the mark, giving coach Johnson his 12th win - in 22 total games - against AP Top-25 teams.

Family of 5 Killed in Wrong-Way Crash
Investigators are now working to find any witnesses who saw the 41-year-old man driving the pickup truck prior to the crash. According to a report from LEX 18 in Kentucky, the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. near the 107 mile marker.

"We need to play that way for all 40 minutes", Kentucky forward PJ Washington said. At the beginning of the week when we first started practice, we knew we had to get in there, go to work, and bring it to the game. PJ Washington led five players in double-figures, but United Kingdom struggled with the three-ball and we're out-rebounded 40-32 on the day. Keldon Johnson finished with 13. Travis paced the Wildcats with 10 points in the first half, followed by Hagans and Johnson with eight points apiece. Alabama shot 27-of-61 from the floor, 11-of-31 from beyond the 3-point arc and 14-of-20 on free throws. Kentucky led for just 10 minutes in a contest that featured nine ties and 10 lead changes. Ashton Hagans added 11 points, three steals, three dimes and two rebounds. Dazon Ingram scored 11 points, all in the second half.

Alabama will look to increase its win streak to six games on January 8 when it visits LSU Tigers.

Although the Wildcats are pretty much better all across the board, the Crimson Tide have won four consecutive games and found their go-to scorer in Kira Lewis Jr. "Our main focus in the second half was to not let him get off and I think we did a great job of that".

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has raked in the winnings for those following its picks.
