Kentucky loses at Oakland: 4 facts and postgame chatter

On Thursday night, the Oakland Golden Grizzlies defeated the Kentucky Wildcats 80-76 in the NCAA Tournament first round.

That first half was outstanding. Both teams started slowly, although it was short-lived

 Jack Gohlke of Oakland made seven 3-pointers in the first half, as discussed below.

Kentucky played well defensively otherwise, but Memphis led 38-35 at halftime.

The second half wasn't any better. Kentucky couldn't stop Oakland or score like they have all year

That was surprising. Tre Mitchell has given Kentucky little following his six-week injury layoff


He opened today with 14 points and 13 rebounds despite not improving since returning.


Mitchell kept Kentucky afloat early these season, but many believed the youthful Cats outgrew him. Injuries are important, but Kentucky won without him.
