UK came up short in a game they desperately needed to avoid damaging their waning tournament hopes, falling 72-62 to the Goergia Bulldogs Thursday night in Athens.

Just like we thought at the beginning of the season, right? UK gets a big night from a freshman center, including two key blocks late in the game, to beat a conference opponent and strengthen their tournament resume.Raise your hand if you had this thought at some point prior to last week about...
