The Kentucky Wildcats left Knoxville with a win for the first time since February 17, 2015, ending a four-game losing streak to the Vols on Rocky Top with a 77-64 win.
A balanced attack paced Kentucky offensively as five Wildcats reached double figures.
Sophomore guard Immanuel Quickley led Kentucky in scoring with 18 points and delivered the dagger three-pointer with 1:32 to play that gave the Wildcats a 71-61 lead.
The story of the day is the emergence of freshman wing Johnny Juzang, who had a career game. Juzang scored 13 points off the bench and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the field, including 3-of-3 from three-point range and 2-of-2 at the free throw line.
John Calipari had a lot to say about Juzang and the Wildcats win in his postgame presser. You can watch video of the press conference below.
