Second half surge leads to #7 KU win over #20 Kentucky
INDIANAPOLIS (WIBW) - With a 23-point, ten-rebound performance by KU redshirt freshman Jalen Wilson, the #7 Jayhawks overcame a 13-point first-half deficit to beat #20 Kentucky Monday night 65-62.
Junior Ochai Agbaji added 17 points and five rebounds, while Christian Braun pulled down 13 boards and pitched in eight points.
The Wildcats had a chance to send the game to overtime down three with ten seconds left, but a three-point attempt by Kentucky senior Davion Mintz was no good.
KU moves to 2-1 on the year. Next up, the Jayhawks will return to Allen Fieldhouse to play their home opener against Washburn Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
