Coming off arguably the biggest win of the season, UK narrowly avoided being swept by Texas A&M winning in overtime 72-68 Saturday afternoon in College Station TX.
Billy Gillispie decided to at the last minute to not show up, and for a while in the 2nd half so did UK (15-6, 6-2). After taking a 9 point lead into halftime, the Cats never trailed but also never expanded that nine point lead. Texas A&M didn’t quit, and after a Fabyon Harris jumper...

Billy Gillispie
Multiple news outlets are reporting that Billy Gillispie, former coach of both Texas A&M and Kentucky, will be in attendance Saturday as UK looks to avenge its first conference home loss under John Calipari.

In a game that could serve as a microcosm of the up and down year UK is having, the Cats go nearly eight minutes in the 2nd half without a field goal and fall on the road to the Crimson Tide.
For a while it looked like Kentucky was going to pick up right where it left Saturday night’s game against Auburn, and had to feel good leading 33-24 on the road going into halftime.Then things went bad, really bad.Alabama went on a 19-6 run in the first eleven minutes of the second half to...
