Kentucky takes fiery win over Iowa State, 87-71

It was a game lit on fire. Kentucky took the lead right off the tip, playing like they came for a win. They out-hustled, out-shot, and out-played Iowa State and ended the first half ahead by 11 points.

Last time Kentucky lost after leading by double digits at half was Dec. 15, 2007 to UAB at Freedom Hall. Up 40-28, Cats lost 79-76.

We entered the second half and Kentucky let their guard down. Iowa State rested during the half and came back out as a team ready to play. And they did – for a few minutes, and then Kentucky decided to step their game back up. With just under ten minutes in the game, Kentucky led by 20 points against Iowa State, 72-52. As Kentucky managed to keep a distance from Iowa State, the reaction from Twitter showed their support.

Iowa State hasn't even been bad… Kentucky is just that good.

Kentucky coach will go in the 9th ward if he thinks there's a good basketball player there.

Royce is destroying everyone but Kentucky just can't miss anything. Crazy hot shooting. No one is touching them if they shoot like this.
