In a game that was a lot closer than the final score indicated, Kentucky escaped a feisty Ole Miss team in their first SEC Tournament game, 75-66.  Kentucky got considerable help from Darius Miller down the stretch and some nice contributions from Terrence Jones and Brandon Knight after the pair struggled mightily for the majority of the contest.  The star of the day was Doron Lamb, though, as the freshman guard exploded for 19 points on 7-10 shooting.  Josh Harrellson added 13 and 7.  Kentucky will be chastised for their dumb fouls and some poor defense, but they were fairly good for the most part, only being victimized early by tough, contested shots.  Nonetheless, they found a way to close out another close one and now move on to face the Alabama Crimson Tide.  Time to celebrate.
