Kentucky Loses 

My beloved Kentucky Wildcats lost this evening to the Michigan State Spartans 94-88 in a game that went into second overtime. Kentucky tied the game at the end of regulation on a dramatic 3-point shot by Patrick Sparks that bounced from the back of the rim to the front of the rim and then through the net to send the game to overtime. The two squads were still tied after the first overtime and in the second overtime, Michigan State's excellent defense and free throw shooting and Kentucky's lack of offense eventually sank the Wildcats tonight. I have to give a major kudos to Michigan State for a game well played. Tom Izzo is an excellent coach come tournament time, right along the likes of "Coach K" at Duke in terms of tournament success. Congratulations to the Spartans on a great ball game.
