Tip-in at buzzer lifts No. 19 LSU past No. 5 Kentucky

Tip-in at buzzer lifts No. 19 LSU past No. 5 Kentucky

Defensively, LSU is giving up 73.4 points per game while opponents shoot 44.1 percent against them.

This is a lot of points to give a team that has the athleticism to give Kentucky a run for their money, however, Kentucky is looking pretty unstoppable as of late and as Kentucky has won by at least 8 points in each of their 4 conference home wins, including a recent 28-point victory over SC, I'm going to roll with Kentucky to cover this spread. "Everyone came up tonight, and we have a great team".

LSU's Kavell Bigby-Williams (11) celebrates after tipping in the game winning shot against Kentucky after an NCAA college basketball game in Lexington, Ky., Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.

To be honest with you, I actually agree with Steratore on this one, but I also don't care because I love watching Kentucky lose. "I didn't see (the replay) so I don't know".

That said, according to the NCAA rule book, the basket shouldn't have been reviewed.

Kentucky suffered a last-second loss at home to LSU that will be tough to get over due to a questionable non-call by the referees. However, Will Wade's Tigers came roaring back in the second half and made it a game in the final minutes. Offensively, LSU has been led by Tremont Waters (15.7 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 6.1 apg, 3.0 spg), Naz Reid (13.9 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.0 apg, 1.0 bpg), Skylar Mays (13.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 2.3 apg, 2.0 spg), Ja'Vonte Smart (10.2 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.3 spg).

Kentucky: The Wildcats fell to 4-2 against ranked teams this season.

The LSU Tigers are coming off an 83-78 win over Auburn at home on Saturday to move to 9-1 in the SEC. LSU has a favorable schedule and hosts league leader Tennessee on February 23 in Baton Rouge. Kentucky hosts number-one Tennessee Saturday night at seven Rupp Arena. LSU will continue to play on the road as they take on the Georgia Bulldogs next.
