The Kentucky Wildcats got another chance to get a much-needed, big win against the UCLA Bruins in the CBS Sports Classic on Saturday.

It was another half-hearted offense for the Cats as the Bruins jumped out to a 19-13 lead at the 12-under media timeout.

The Bruins were getting very easy looks offensively, and the Cats couldn’t buy the basket that allowed UCLA to build a 27-15 lead with just under 9 minutes remaining.

The lead would reach 31-18, but Kentucky finally started to make some runs and at halftime, the Bruins led 35-27.

Offensively in the first half, the Cats had more turnovers (12) than field goals (11).

The second half got off to a better start for the Cats, especially for Chris Livingston, as he sparked Kentucky’s run to make it a 38-38 game with 15:15 left.

With the game tied at 40, UCLA was able to go on a quick 6-0 run after the Cats clawed their way back.

That 6-point deficit was still there with 8 minutes left as UCLA held a 53–47 lead.

Down the stretch, the Cats continued to cut it to 2, but never got over the hump as UCLA won it 63-53.
