Kentucky holds off Alabama, 66-55

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - John Wall had 22 points and 10 rebounds
for his first double-double, and fellow freshman DeMarcus Cousins
got his seventh in a row, as No. 3 Kentucky outmuscled Alabama
66-55 on Tuesday night.
With 16 points and 13 rebounds, Cousins extended his UK freshman
record with 15 double-doubles. The last Kentucky player to get
seven in a row was Jim Andrews, who had a team-record 10 straight
in 1973.
Five of Cousins' rebounds were on the offensive end, while all
of Wall's career-high 10 were on defense.
With the victory, Kentucky (23-1, 8-1) remained in first place
in the Southeastern Conference East Division, one game ahead of
Vanderbilt, which beat Tennessee on Tuesday.
Tony Mitchell had 13 points for Alabama (13-11, 3-7).
Cousins, who grew up in Mobile, Ala., hit a one-handed heave in
traffic to give Kentucky its largest lead, 46-32.

    I agree with WILDKAT. I 2 am one of the ones that does not have ESPNU. I wish they would go back to the good ole days when the majority of the games were on WYMT. That way we could see all of the games.

    I have always hated sportz Until now, I watched the wildcats playing and they lost I took it personal it broke my heart I cried inside it hurt me deep,I became a fan last week Now I hope Ky Wildcats win every game in the world all the ball games forever and no one els wins anymore, but us I hope the big blue balls goes in the hole every time and no other team in America or south America and China and russia and the world ever beats the Ky Wildcats ever again I cant stand looseing ball games ever since last week when I got in to sports , I might play someday for Kentucky im 51 years old , but I got to get my GED first and learn to play ball.

    Hey Merb, I totally agree! To keep the country waiting to watch the Alabama/UK game to show the OT of George Mason was crazy! I hate to say it, but if this were an ACC game (like Duke/NC), I'm sure the network would have done exactly as you indicated......carried the ACC game & kept the TV audience updated on the GM score! Bad choice on their part!

    VERY frustrated with the George Mason game preempting the Kentucky game. Of course it would go into OT. Seriously, the network should've gone on to the UK game and cut in occasionally with the GM/VCU score. Which of the teams are ranked in the top, carry a massive world-wide fan base and are loaded with freakishly talented players??? It's a no-brainer! C-A-T-S!!!

    Congratulations!The cats are ranked #2,but we sure aren't playing like number 2.I am very concerned when NCAA Tournament time comes.We are a good team,but not consistent enough.We have some very good players,but they don't play their potential each game.With all that said ,we all forget that these are just people and young people @ that.We set our expectations too high and expect no mistakes.Do your best each game and the true cats fans will be happy.Play hard and play safe.I am a cats fan win or lose.

    What the heck is with U.K. being aired on ESPNU,all the fans dont get channels that are extra.Wynt talked about the game all afternoon,we all sit and waited all day to watch our Cats to show their stuff...and we had to miss it! :o(
