Kentucky 70 - 55 Boise St. (No. 2,119)

Here's the score by quarters:

1st:  Kentucky 22, Boise St. 14
2d:  Kentucky 19, Boise St. 17 (UK led 41-31 at the half)
3d:  Kentucky 15, Boise St. 10 (UK led 56-41 with 10 minutes to go)
4th:  Kentucky 14, Boise St. 14 (Final score:  UK 70-55)

This was UK's first game ever against Boise State, and its first game against a team from Idaho since 1955.  The Wildcats are now 3-0 all-time against teams from the Gem State.

Ken Pom liked this result, as he bumped UK up from 11th to 7th.  But he gives UK only a 34 percent chance of beating UNC on Saturday, and only a 49 percent chance of beating U of L in a few weeks.  Losing those two games will not improve the mood in the Commonwealth.


  1. I got my hair cut by a new barber yesterday, and he totally predicted that UK would win last night.

  2. Ken Pom has now knocked UK down to number 9. He likes the Heels on Saturday by 77-73.
