No. 18 Kentucky preps for rematch against LSU

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky's five-point loss at LSU last month stands out in a list of games the Wildcats feel were missed opportunities for victories.

The 18th-ranked Wildcats outrebounded the Tigers 42-37 and outscored them in the paint 40-32, but never led in Louisiana. Thy were unable to stop forward Johnny O'Bryant III, who had 29 points, and allowed LSU to shoot 51 percent from the field in the Tigers' 87-82 win.

Kentucky (20-6, 10-3 Southeastern Conference) aims to be more assertive defensively in Saturday's rematch in Lexington and not let LSU (16-9, 7-6) get on a roll like it did the first time.

The Wildcats need to play a complete game against LSU after allowing Mississippi to cut a 22-point second-half lead to single digits Tuesday before beating Ole Miss 84-70.
