Rocky Ride
Long Kentucky Cold Spell, Poor Shooting And Repeat Performance From LSU's Wilson Allow Tigers To Claim 65-52 Win, Series Sweep
By Mike Estep
For Eddie Sutton and his Kentucky basketball team, the plane ride from Lexington to Baton Rouge was rough and tumble as inclimate weather conditions caused turbulance for nearly the entire three and a half hour flight.
Maybe it was a bad omen.
Because after the Wildcats touched down safely in Bayou Country, the rocky road continued as Dale Brown's Tigers handed them a 65-52 setback, throwing Kentucky back into a two-way tie with Georgia for third place in the Southeastern Conference standings.
It might have been wet and rainy outside Assembly Center Saturday afternoon, but inside the building it was a drought that led to Kentucky's undoing. UK could manage just eight points during a 14-minute stretch that started late in the first half and lasted until early in the second period, and that allowed LSU to post the win and sweep the season series with the 'Cats.
It was a game that Kentucky would have liked to have won, not only to avenge its worst loss in 30 yearsa 76-41 shellacking at the hands of LSU earlier this season at Rupp Arenabut to solidify its hold on third place in the conference standings and bolster its chances of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.
Chapman Spurs Early Rally That Puts 'Cats Out In Front
After the homestanding Tigers jumped out in front 12-7, freshman guard Rex Chapman keyed a 14-0 Kentucky outburst that staked his team to a comfortable nine-point advantage with 7:52 remaining in the half. Chapman started the run with a four-footer and a layup, and after a pair of buckets by Richard Madison and Rob Lock, he connected on a couple of long range bombs. Lock ended the surge with a free throw to give UK a 21-12 lead.
That's when LSU put together a streak of its own. Dale Brown assigned Bernard Wood-side to cover Chapman, and he shut down UK's leading scorer from the field for the rest of the half. Meanwhile, the Tigers outscored Kentucky 21-8 over the game's next 14:10 to take a 33-29 lead that they would not relinquish.
Sutton said the long dry spell put his team in a hole it couldn't dig itself out of.
"I felt like it was probably our offense, not so much just (Woodside's defense) on Chapman, but overall our offense just being stagnant." Sutton said. "I think with about four minutes to go until halftime we had that seven-point lead (23-16), and then we went eight minutes into the second half I think with six points or eight points, I'm not sure. So during that 12-minute period we really let that game slip away. And it was really more offensivelypoor execution on our partthan defense on their part."
In Second Half, Cold Spell, Nikita Wilson Doom Kentucky
From that point on LSU extended the lead, thanks in part to poor shooting by UK and the outstanding play of Tiger center Nikita Wilson. Kentucky would connect on just eight of 25 field goal attempts for 37 percent in th
