UConn Rising?

Well they'll be ranked now:  after  beating Michigan State, UConn had Kentucky for afters, beating the Wildcats 84-67.  It was 19-18 with just under 11 minutes gone in the first half.  UConn went in to halftime up 50-29.

So UConn outscored UK 31-11.  That usually will do it.

Just as impressively, they shot nearly 58% for the game and 58.3% from behind the line.  Toss in 89.5% from the line (17-19) and that's a kick-butt performance.

UK shot 36.7% and 36.4%.
