Kentucky moved to 7-1 on the season with tonight’s 76-64 win over Southern, but it was kind of a mess. Let’s go attempt to unpack it with tonight’s box score and analytics. Some quick takeaways:

  • Despite playing only 25 minutes, Oscar Tshiebwe notched his seventh double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Eighteen of those points came in the second half.
  • TyTy Washington finished in double figures for the seventh straight game, putting up 14 points, 5 assists, 2 turnovers, and 1 steal in 26 minutes.
  • After missing three games with an illness, Davion Mintz returned to action, finishing with nine points and five rebounds in 16 minutes.
  • Even though he had five turnovers tonight, Sahvir Wheeler led the Cats in plus/minus efficiency at +14. Jacob Toppin was close behind at +13 and Tshiebwe at +10.
