Kentucky hols off Virginia Tech, 93-86

There have been concerns about their margin of victories in games against inferior opponents, but, considering the upsets that have happened, fans will gladly take the win and run. The game became an up and down affair with neither team taking a big lead until Kerry Blackshear Jr. made a spinning layup late in the first half that put the Hokies up by 8.

Virginia Tech also ranks second nationally in three-point field goal shooting percentage (46.8) and fourth in assists (19.9) as well as first in advanced metrics such as offensive efficiency (1.24 points per possession); effective field goal percentage (64.2), which gives added weight to three-pointers; and true shooting percentage (134), which accounts for free throws as well as all field goal attempts. We were not playing specific to one player.

But the result also left Virginia Tech (9-2) smarting from a flurry of unforced errors and three-point shooting that betrayed the Hokies in the second half in their first visit to Rupp Arena.

"We're excited definitely because we know this is a big test", Clarke said of Kentucky. Kentucky finished with a 33-30 edge in rebounds. We are more of a post-up team. He finished with 18 points and five rebounds, but he fouled out of the game with 3:29 remaining.

"Wildcats" forward Quade Green was held out of the starting lineup due to an eye injury suffered in practice last week. The Hokies have 199 assists vs. 130 turnovers. 3 pointer to push in front 42-39 with just over two minutes to play in the half.

"For our new guys, it'll be their first opportunity to play in that type of an environment". "If we let Virginia Tech be the aggressor, we lose this game", Calipari said. Knox's 11 points coming out of the break was critical in rallying Kentucky from a 47-41 halftime deficit.

Virginia Tech has recruited Mitchell to play a similar role to former tight end Bucky Hodges, who was used nearly exclusively as a wide receiver in his last two seasons.

The first half was competitive and entertaining. Of course, the league has a number of games to do that, but having a road win over Kentucky is a great ace in the hole to have. As a team, the Hokies shot 62 percent, which is the best an opponent has shot against United Kingdom in a half all season.

A back-and-forth game featuring 11 lead changes, eight ties and plenty of perimeter fireworks eventually swung Kentucky's way down the stretch thanks to Knox and Diallo, whose 3-pointer with 4:54 left made it 78-71. We are trying to learn who we are.
