UK Falls To LSU
Johnny O'Bryant III had 29 points and nine rebounds, and LSU led wire-to-wire in an 87-82 upset of No. 11 Kentucky on Tuesday night.
Jordan Mickey scored 14 points and blocked five shots for LSU (13-6, 4-3 SEC), which put on a show for an estimated 6,000-plus fans who made it to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center despite unusual winter weather that coated roads with ice. Hustling and active on the defensive end, LSU blocked 11 shots and helped force 13 Kentucky turnovers.
Shavon Coleman added 14 points for the Tigers, who out shot the Wildcats 51 percent (32 of 63) to 44 percent (32 of 73).
James Young scored 23 points and Dakari Johnson had 15 for Kentucky (15-5, 5-2), which has seen all five of its losses come away from home, including two straight road games in the Southeastern Conference.
