  • Cat Attack 2-18-10

    I don’t know about you, but I sure had a sense of déjà vu as I watched Kentucky battle Mississippi State. Flashbacks of Columbia and the team’s only loss of the season kept running through my mind with the same horrible ending about to repeat itself. But this time, instead of faltering on the road in a hostile environment, Kentucky managed to send the game to overtime where they were able to hold on for a hard fought victory 81-75.
