Kentucky Downs LSU 67-63

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Joe Crawford scored 21 points to lead
Kentucky over LSU on Saturday, 67-63.
Kentucky squandered an 8-point lead in the second half before
taking the lead for good, at 54-51, on a 3-pointer by Ramel Bradley
with 6:36 left.
The Wildcats (13-10, 7-3 Southeastern Conference) had some
anxious moments, coming up empty down the stretch on three straight
possessions after a Crawford field goal put Kentucky up 61-57. But
LSU (9-15, 2-8 Southeastern Conference), which started the game
strong and led for much of the first half, couldn't capitalize.
After coming to within two points, 61-59, Terry Martin missed a
3-point shot; one possession later, Anthony Randolph made
one-of-two free throws to leave the Tigers back by one.
Kentucky's Derrick Jasper extended the Wildcats' lead back to
three points, 63-60, with two free throws with 27 seconds left.
The final 10 seconds featured a flurry of scoring, including
four free throws by Bradley. Martin knocked down a 3-pointer
inbetween.
Bradley finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
Randolph led LSU 24 points, matching his season high. He also
had 14 rebounds. Martin scored 12 off the bench.
