Alabama holds off rally, upsets No. 13 Kentucky
Tevin Mack made six first-half 3-pointers on his way to 22 points, and Alabama held off No. 13 Kentucky 77-75 on Saturday at Tuscaloosa, Ala., in the
SEC opener for both teams.
Dazon Ingram scored all 11 of his points after halftime, including some key free throws in the Crimson Tide’s fifth consecutive win. The Wildcats (10-3) gave the Tide (10-3) a big scare in the final seconds after surging back from 11 points down, but Tyler Herro’s 3-point try for the win at the buzzer bounced off the rim.
PJ Washington led Kentucky with 15 points. Each team had five scorers in double figures.
