    O'Bryant-Led LSU Leaves Kentucky in the Cold, 87-82


    BATON ROUGE -- Though freezing temperatues closed campus and roads across the region, the LSU men's basketball team ignited a student-led crowd with a 87-82 victory over No. 11-ranked Kentucky late Tuesday at the Maravich Center.

    Johnny O'Bryant III scored a season-best 29 points to lead LSU (13-6, 4-3 SEC) to their first victory over a ranked Kentucky team since 2000.

    O'Bryant made 12-of-20 shots and had nine rebounds, while Shavon Coleman and Jordan Mickey each scored 14. Coleman added nine rebounds, while Mickey blocked five shots.

    Kentucky native Anthony Hickey contributed 11 points with six assists and three steals in 33 minutes running the point for the Tigers.

    LSU's point total was its highest against Kentucky since 1996 and the most in a victory over the Wildcats since 1991.

    Kentucky (15-5, 5-2 SEC) had its three-game winning streak in 2014 and five-game streak over the Tigers snapped. Guard James Young made 9-of-18 shots including five three pointers to lead the Wildcats with 23 points.

    LSU returns to action on Saturday, Feb. 1, when Arkansas comes to the Maravich Center for a 4 p.m. CT contest. The game will be televised by ESPNU and broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network beginning at 3:30 p.m.
