Kentucky bounces back from loss, picks up 88-67 victory over EKU

Well, that’s one way to bounce back from your first regular season loss in over a year.

No. 5 Kentucky jumped out early against Eastern Kentucky before coasting to a nice 88-67 win over Colonels on Wednesday. Senior Alex Poythress led the way with a strong 21-point, 13-rebound double-double, and Jamal Murray scored 16 points of his own.

Tyler Ulis also provided nine points and eight assists as he continues to get healthier following his elbow injury. Ulis’ night included this nice alley-oop pass to Marcus Lee.
