Coming out of the half, Kentucky looked tight once again. Playing not to lose, the Cats allowed Providence to hang around with their three point shooting…until they went on an 7-0 run from 14:11 to 10:02 left in the game. From then on, Kentucky was in control of the game, running what they wanted when they wanted to. Whether it was one of the Harrison twins hitting a clutch three, James Young fumbling the ball before throwing a lob to willie Cauley-Stein, or Willie Cauley-Stein driving to the lane and finishing with a nice floater, this Kentucky team showed that they can extend the lead and do so in a hurry! Kentucky finished the game with a 79-65 win, moving their record to 7-1 heading into their Friday evening matchup with Baylor in Dallas, TX. The story of the game was Willie Cauley-Stein, who finished the game with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 9 blocks. His wonderful performance overshadowed the face that Julius Randle failed to get a double-double for the first time this season, finishing with 12 points and 8 rebounds. More to come later tonight on this game.
