Tenth-ranked Kentucky went 17-of-23 from the field in the second half, at one point converting on seven-straight three-point attempts, to leave Baton Rouge victorious with a 79-76 win over LSU Tuesday night.
Skylar Mays led the Tigers in scoring with 17 points, and Darius Days posted a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
Next, the Tigers (18-8, 9-4 SEC) will travel to Columbia to face South Carolina on Saturday. Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
"Hopefully they'll be improved. If not, we'll be playing home games in the NIT."
Nearly 30 games into the season, #LSU Will Wade keeps seeing his team make the same mistakes.
