Takeaways from Kentucky's 80-72 win over Mississippi State!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Richards 25 of his career high 27 points in the 2nd half along with 11 rebounds. He still sometimes does not post up low enough on the block, but did everything else tonight.
EJ Montgomery 12 points 8 rebounds and I loved his aggressiveness tonight, he still fouls too much but at least he showed energy tonight.
Immanuel Quickley another big time scoring game for him. 21 points for him.
Ashton Hagans was solid tonight 6 assists 2 turnovers and that is more like it.
Maxey not the greatest scoring game but a great all around stat line tonight. Needs to start hitting threes again.
Brooks Jr and Juzang produced 0 points combined smh. Both have had some sickness that could still be affecting both.
Nate Sestina was solid early but not so good after his shoulder popped out. That's to be expected.
Good win but not having a killer instinct is still an issue that hopefully will be fixed very soon.
Mississippi State outrebounded Kentucky 40-38 so not bad after the pregame talk was can Kentucky keep the Bulldogs frontline off the glass.
