First, Happy Thanksgiving. Second, here’s your wrap of SEC hoops action from last night:
After coming up short against #6 Duke and #8 Memphis, the Volunteers went long to knock off Maui Invitational host Chaminade. UT dropped 15 3-pointers on the Silverswords to move to 3-2 on the season.
Kentucky won its 35th straight home game under John Calipari last night, sweeping aside Radford with ease. Freshman point guard Marquis Teague had his most efficient game of the season with 13 points, five assists and — more importantly — just two turnovers.
Like Tennessee and Kentucky, Alabama also feasted on a pre-Thanksgiving turkey. Five players hit double-figures for the Tide as Bama won its 23rd home game in a row.
Trent Johnson’s team dropped to 3-3 on the year with a homecourt, overtime loss last night. The Tigers have now lost to Coastal Carolina, Northwestern and South Alabama… none of which will help Johnson keep his job at the end of the season.
