UK basketball: Louisiana State big men pose challenge for Cats

Willie Cauley-Stein compares LSU's front-line tandem to — gulp — Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon. "But taller," UK Coach John Calipari said of LSU's Johnny O'Bryant and freshman Jordan Mickey. Against Tennessee's bulk brothers (Stokes and Maymon), UK had the advantage of shot-altering height, Calipari said. Of course, bulk got much the best of it, although Kentucky beat the Vols thanks to unusually good shooting from the perimeter and foul line.
