Cold shooting, lukewarm effort doom Cats in loss to LSU

ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich slapped a memorable label on the Kentucky-LSU game Tuesday night. One team was "competing," he said. The other team was "just playing." Kentucky was the latter as LSU won 87-82. Led by big men Johnny O'Bryant and freshman Jordan Mickey, LSU never trailed. Kentucky fell to 15-5 overall and into third place in the Southeastern Conference. At 5-2 in the league, the Cats trail Florida (6-0), which plays at Mississippi State Thursday, and Ole Miss (5-1), which plays at Tennessee on Wednesday night.
