LSU tops Kentucky on controversial game-winning tip

Naz Reid

As the shot went up, the right hand of United Kingdom freshman EJ Montgomery briefly passed through the net, and as the shot came down, Tigers senior Kavell Bigby-Williams rose to meet the ball with his.

The Wildcats hit two clutch free throws to tie the game at 71 with just over five seconds left on the clock.

Kentucky coach John Calipari was disappointed in the call and said it was comparable to a shot clock violation that wasn't called against Wisconsin in a 71-64 loss to Badgers in the 2015 Final Four.

"Well, this one easy to go check, too". So we're like Wilt Chamberlain; we change rules.

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, Kentucky is the clear favorite, as the Wildcats are getting odds of -8.5 points against LSU. LSU trailed by a 26-10 margin early in this one, however, fought back to make it just a 3-point deficit at halftime, and pulled away in the 2nd half after taking a 75-65 lead with 3:13 left in regulation. Tremont Waters has been leading the team with 15.7 points and 6.1 assists per game while Naz Reid is adding 13.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest.

OPEC squeezes oil output to 4-year low, Russian Federation compliance low

Johnson paced the Wildcats with nine points in the first half, followed by Washington with eight.

The Wildcats have been putting up 78.7 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.7 percent as a team. The Wildcats and Volunteers will play in a rematch on March 2 in Knoxville in a game that could determine the SEC regular-season champion.

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.

The LSU Tigers are coming off an 83-78 win over Auburn at home on Saturday to move to 9-1 in the SEC. LSU, meanwhile, gets its crack at the Vols two weeks from now in Baton Rouge. LSU will continue to play on the road as they take on the Georgia Bulldogs next.

Kentucky's next game is against Tennessee this Saturday in another home game at Rupp Arena.
