Smart move by Lon Kruger taking Cousins out of the game after officials ask him and Mason to cool it. Cousins has been sensational but his temper can get to him.

Rebels' Moody throws down alley-oop

Fall frees the ball

It can be a real inconvenience when the ball gets stuck between the rim and the backboard. But when UCF's 7-foot-6 center Tacko Fall is around, he doesn't even have to leave the ground in order to rectify the situation.

Oklahoma is 2 of 13 from the arc. Kansas is 6 of 11. Buddy Hield hasn't hit a shot from the floor and yet the Sooners are down only 5 at the half at home. My guess is they'll take that.

Kentucky puts on a dunk contest

It seemed like Kentucky was hosting its own dunk contest Saturday as it showed off some impressive slams against South Carolina.


Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

With the exception of TCU, every one of Oklahoma's games in the past couple weeks have featured early shooting woes and slow starts. Only one of those games was a loss, and it looks like the Sooners are starting to get going against Kansas, but the larger trend is still somewhat disconcerting.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

LSU and Kentucky both get key wins today and are tied for first in the SEC at 9-3. Tigers now 12-5 since getting both Hornsby and Victor back. 'Cats have been terrific of late. Take away one half of play at Tennessee, and UK has been as good as just about anyone the last 3 weeks.
